I ran accross a few 1u servers these were 700mhz ones that had an arm that
would accordian (not quite the right word I'm looking for) and be in a
straight line or fold up and sit against the back of the server.  It would
typically mount in the same screwholes as the rear rack ear.  The part I
didn't like is they appeared to be a bit of an airflow obstruction and they
looked like a pain in the ass to maintain.
