Hmm, a few years ago, on a different mailing list and inspired by some 
of those anachronistic peripherals that the enthusiast community keeps
creating for vintage computers, I had already wondered aloud whether it
might be feasible and useful to construct a USB HBA for sbus machines.
Due to lack of time and knowledge, I haven't pursued that endeavour for
myself and probably won't be able to do so anytime soon, but perhaps
somebody with more cycles to spare will entertain the idea as well.

So long,
