our little group here at wmu decided to run deschall on two
groups of sparcs5/20s. one sysadmin just killed the jobs for
various "too much load" and other reasons. the other shut off
our accounts and reported us to the dean. *sigh*

anyway, the more important item is this: we have an nCUBE that
remains idle most of the time. it isn't the newest thing in the
world, nor the fastest, but it is 128 cpus of idleness. thus,
what is the possibilities for getting deschall for really, really
obscure architectures? it is unix-ish and can read a unix file
system etc. i have not experimented with udp on the machine
though, and it may not have udp C calls.

so, can it be done?
