[rescue] DIY-blade?

Not that there would be much to gain for those of us with home labs, but has 
anyone ever thought of a cheap way to build a blade-like system?  Basically, 
a bunch of single-board computers with some kind of backplane (or not, 
doesn't have to be fancy...  goal is high-density)?  I know there are SBC 
P4's out there, but I'd rather not be limited to x86.  Mini-ITX is another 
idea (once again x86), but performance-limited.

Like I said, mostly a "can it be done" question, not a "should it be done" or 
"is it cost-effective to do" question.
