I think getting boxes isn't the main problem (even a MicroVAX could be
organized to start a debian port, while there's no real libc available:)

The main problem I see is clearly a place, some power and connectivity.

The rest (notably remote power/reset) can be dealt with (some soldering
and we're done:)

I don't yet have a place, power and connectivity, but if it was somewhat
"near", I'd really volunteer to do the stacking / soldering part. A
hacking center for longer than a  LinuxTag.
