The developers working on it are Peter Jones (at RH) and myself. Peter
has a Sun Blade 100, and I have an AX1105-500 ... and while neither are
an X1, all three machines are quite similar with the slightest of
differences. For the most part, getting one of them to work will be
getting the other two to work as well.
And yeah, I'd be interested in an account so I can prod it a bit for
information (or you can just run a few commands for me).

Hmm... that's a new one... not what the SB100 or AX1105 have...
