I think you misunderstand my suggestion.  For $45, you could rent 
out a zone at that first link for a month and give Kai access to 
it.  That way, you don't give someone outside the company access 
to your machines.  Sometimes the host will offer free access for 
open source projects, as that will mean more software developed 
for their platform.  As for what kind of bounty it'd take for Kai 
to work on a port, you'd have to ask him. :)
