I could get my hands on a 220R with 36G (2x Ultrasparc) in a few weeks,
but don't have the time at the moment to speed up that process. I also
talked to Pasi and he doesn't have the time to "work in" a new person.
But there's still some interest on our side to work on this, though it's
not completely clear, where the hooks and claws are on that build (no
real C confidence over here).

So if that process can be doubled ...

I don't see much chances though that I could give away user accounts on
that machine, which are reachable from the outside world, as that
machine sits in our server intranet. And still has to lose the job it's
doing at the moment.
