BeOS & Derivatives Gobe Productive v2.0.1 now works in Haiku. "I've played with GoBE Productive for half an hour now, and it seems remarkedly stable. Gobe Productive is a unique piece of software, and one of the darlings of BeOS software. This will surely fill a much needed gap in the office suite department, despite the software's age! It's also testament to the vision of enabling backwards compatibility to BeOS application, and how good Haiku is at it."

"If it doesn't help Haiku obtain Alpha status any sooner, isn't it just filling up the source tree with useless fluff (bloat)?"

Well, first of all:
Porting to a new architecture usually HELPS improving the source code, since there has to be a better separation of the arch dependent and arch indepentent parts of the code.

And then:
Since mmu_man isn't an employee of Haiku, Inc., he is free to spend his free time in doing whatever he wants.
Yes, maybe he could work on helping Haiku obtain alpha status, but maybe he gets more fun (shock!) this way ?
