Per recent discussions about porting platforms, I wonder if computers at
museums should be a priority.  I was mostly thinking about UNICOS in
general, is it a platform that people build newly developed programs on?
I can't find any recent information about UNICOS at cray.com so I
suspect it disappeared off the radar some time ago.  We could consider
removing some old cruft in gnulib if that is the case.
