One problem with building either posibus or negibus devices is that
DEC connector blocks seem to be made of unobtanium these days. At
one time there were some made by other vendors, which were generally
inferior to the DEC ones, but it doesn't appear that any are available

Building an Omnibus card doesn't require any DEC connector blocks,
making it somewhat easier.

It would be nice to find a source of the DEC plastic module handles,
and the metal stiffener/ejector handles used on DEC hex-height modules.
But I'm not holding my breath for those, either.
