These are less expensive than the TYAN that Jeremi is using, but not
exactly inexpensive either - starting at $2.5k here for a suitable
platform (including PSU and motherboard), plus another $2k+ for two
CPUs adequate for this platform (OK, can choose a crappy CPU and install
just one - then it's cheaper), plus RAM, plus disk.  If we'd (need to)
install four Xeon Phi's (in 2U), that cost would be acceptable, but for
just one it feels excessive.
