I think a bigger question is where do you find hardware where you can
get remote root on; I'm not very familiar with s390 or mainframes in
general, but its not a piece of hardware one individual person would
own. I'm aware of the Hercules emulator, but that doesn't seem like it
would be useful for general development of a port.
