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.
