I've talked to Purdue's IBM SP rep (before our SP went off of
maintenance contract because IBM wanted silly amounts for it), and he
said "Yes, they make those". He said that they were common in some 3rd
world countries, and sometimes used by the military in the US. Now,
that's some "house wiring" I wouldn't want to have to do (or at least
worry about nicking wires or some such)! I'm glad my S/390 came with
the lower voltage 200-480VAC autoranging power supply. :)
