Default Using Traveller to play other settings

Okay, so I know that there's HERO Traveller, and that there's a PBP game going on set in Rome or Ancient Greece (or both ... I might be confusing that with another BBS that has a Greek game going on), and as discussed elsewhere that there've been some fantasy Traveller games.

But how often and what other genres has anyone used the core engine for? Has anybody done a western? Classic non-fantasy medieval? Contemporary spy thriller?

I'm just kind of curious for a couple of reasons;
1) I've written some samurai adventure seeds on my blog which didn't get much readership, and yet I've seen people briefly discuss other genres for the game.
2) In the posted interview Marc Miller / Avery states that the game was meant to be a GURPS like game, but evolved into something else, and I was curious how many people still used it like a GURPS like game engine.

Thanks for any replies.
