The Ageia.com physics processing unit's marketing literature seems 
so oriented to gaming that I wonder if they would open their API 
enough for people in our  market niche could look at it and whether 
it is suitable for putting in clusters. But if they did, what do y'all
think? Would specialty  (albeit commodity) coprocessors hanging off a
PCI slot be suitable for your applications?

While I'm bringing this up, how about things like the  MAP
processor?
