Cheers for the test release but I have to say that mugen will NEVER fully work on the PS3. it takes way to much ram on a nice gaming rig, so it will never run fully on a PS3. once you start introducing characters, stages, screenpacks, etc, it's not gonna run. I would imagine 4 characters, 4 stages, and an SP will be the limit. I will check and see exactly how many characters, stages, and SP take before you hit the 256 MB limit but I guarantee it's not much at all. My current mugen install takes a gig in ram IIRC.
Now paintown will probably work without any problems. But for people expecting mugen to work, don't count on it. Yes it will work on a stock install. But once you introduce the things that make mugen what it is, it's gonna crash hard.
But like sabin said, M.U.G.E.N the way we all like it, will never be possible. Small installs below 10 characters, stages, etc, will probably work. But I still doubt even that. As you have to run the game through paintown, than stack the characters and everything else on top of that. With 256MB of ram that doesn't leave any room at all. Hell winmugen by itself is highly unstable and in all honesty is a hack. Mugen 1.0 is closed source and so is winmugen but 1.0 is more stable. If anything you might be able to add one or two more characters with mugen 1.0 while gaining a bit of stability. But it won't be much.
Also I know mugen runs on the xbox but it takes quite a lot to get it stable. Plus you can't have a lot of characters. I believe it's called Xmugen. I remember seeing a guide on a prominent mugen forum for it. But you couldn't add a lot of characters, nor was it as good as regular winmugen. The only way to get it stable enough for a good amount of custom high quality characters, would be to create a low foot print version. Basically cut out any fluff in win mugen. Plus it would raise a lot of compatibility issues. Likewise the high quality characters and stages, especially interactive ones, would be a no go. So stages from SyN and all the other high quality mugen creators would be simply not possible.
Final note : Plus the xbox is built off of X86 which makes it easier to run as well. a PPC version will add more problems in and of itself. I just don't see it happening.
EDIT: One last thing, I have a character in beta, what do I need to do to test him out?
