I've heard that time machine will work with arbitrary .dmg's -
which would allow you to setup a SMB or NFS area with lots
of hostname.dmg files for time machine targets.. A bit of a pain
because of needing to connect the 2 layers, but nothing that couldn't
be scripted..

Same might also work for iSCSI if you wanted to test that -
Not sure of OSX iSCSI initiator status..
