The Roku guys have never been open on this topic, and they aren't gonna start now.
I'm sure they'd love to have the feature in some form, but they usually don't announce things until they're near their release date.

MobileTribe mentioned they are working getting access to Orb through their channel and that they expected the update to be available in a few weeks.
PlayOn mentioned they requested a SDK to begin working on a channel.

But I must admit that a XBMC type port (read eye-candy) would be nice though. Is Boxee some sort of spin off of the XBMC code? For that matter, perhaps even Boxee being ported (which I doubt since they now sell hardware (with D-Link)).
Now, I thought Orb let you stream your local content to the outside world (e.g. able to access your music and pictures from your house at work)
and PlayOn was to watch shows?

I hope when they release the SDK they also release a open source bare bones server software at the same time, assuming I am correct.
I really want to be to use the roku as a myth client, so I have high hopes for the SDK release
