Speaking of which, I discovered the other day that you can run a sinlge
Xinerama session across monitors connected to multiple Sun Ray 1 terminals.
If I can pick up some cheap Sun Rays on EBay, I'm going to build the
ultimate X-terminal :-)

People have reported that you can do triple head with SI+SI+SI or SE+SE+SE,
but it isn't officially supported. Quad head isn't supported because there
aren't enough XIO connectors for four cards.
