    Yah.  Blades with MP cpus or multi-core capable cpus on them.  Just
    a blade server, then.   The difference between blade based clustering
    and the type of clustering that we want to do is that we want to be
    able to cluster efficiently over a LAN or WAN (i.e. not depend on an
    extremely high speed link between the nodes in the cluster).  That's
    what the cache coherency infrastructure is going to be all about.
