  I'm investigating exactly that, but I don't want to be pushed to
shitty PeeCee hardware when there are a few more generations of good Sun
machines that I can upgrade to. (I'm running T2s now, for the server
duties)  It seems the SPARC support in those OSs really sucks, and this
is production (i.e., puts food on the table) work, so stability is

  The shitty PeeCee hardware is becoming less shitty as the generations
pass; maybe it'll be approaching decent by the time the UltraSPARC-T4s
are somehow too slow to route mail and serve database requests.
