Ignoring the telnetd and snapshot issue, the 860 is a well supported
target with multiple users.  There are example BSPs for the Motorola
MBX8xx series of board and the custom eth_comm BSP.  I can offhand 
think of a few users with custom 860 boards.  The 8xx support is mostly
in the form of shared/libcpu code so is easier to create new BSPs with.
