You know what would be more useful, IMHO, a Qbus/Unibus USB adapter.
This would allow one to add a greater variety of I/O options beyond
standard disk storage, like memory card readers, digital cameras, mice,
keyboards, audio, network adapters, printers, scanners, etc.

You could also hang multiple devices from a single board with the aid
of a USB hub. You'd still have to write drivers for all this stuff,
but in the case of NetBSD, this shouldn't be a problem once a driver
for the custom USB board is built.
