I ruled this out as being more costly than going down the PC route -
I might be mistaken on that - but the last time I looked (about a yr
ago for another project) it was quite costly. 

I'm not even sure what the alpha future is now - and we have had
good performance from our previous alpha setups - but cost is a real
issue in this particular case and x86 of some variety looked the
cheapest way forward.
