it's easy to source and build pretty big IB systems;
how much so with SCI?

I actually like the idea of high-fanout-distributed-router systems,
but they seem prepetually exotic.  where are the hypercubes, FNNs?
afaikt, commodification of IB has snuffed topology as a design issue,
except for cray/BG/k machine-level projects.
