Interesting question.  I think that the sirius may be usable in
video<->memory mode (as opposed to graphics<->video mode).

On the other hand, it would be quite amusing to stick a VME SBC with USB
in there and write a driver to talk back and forth.  I wonder how hard
it is to write a VME driver for Irix.
