What about a dedicated server port without the renderer then? It would
be nice to load this up on a POWER4/5 box. The guy next to me handles
testing Linux on the p-Series hardware here (IBM Austin). I bet we
could convince a manager to leave up a server for "technology demo"
purposes. Give us a PPC64 server build, and I'll run it on a 32-proc box.
