I'm sure Guy wouldn't mind doing it, but you might find their total
performance is going to be lackluster. Without proper MIPS assembly
optimizations, we're currently depending on 64-bitslicing methods in C to
make this fast, and the R3000 isn't 64-bit as far as I know.

If you can get about a half dozen O2's or so that'd kick all 100 Indigo's
butts. 8-) My R5k/SC O2 manages about 840,000 keys/second.
