According to this nintendo-scene.com article it very well could be. B)

Excerpt:

The guys over at 24C3 just demoed a Wii hack that is set to provide native wii homebrew in the near future (not running in GC mode, and with full access to all the Wii hardware!)

They were able to find encryption and decryption keys by doing full memory dumps at runtime over a custom serial interface. Using these keys, they were able to create a Wii ‘game’ that ran their own code (their demo happened to show live sensor/Wiimote information, amongst a few other things).
 
Isn't this a little stupid what with wii ware just around the corner?

No, because the Wii Ware service doesn't cater to homebrew developers, it's more like a Nintendo version of XBOX Live Arcade. :)

Fair enough then.

That´s cool. I feared i would have to change my modchip (a WiiKey i just soldered in a month ago) for a new one to play homebrew games.

But if they really found out how to sign homebrew code i won´t have to do this.
