Default PS3 clusters

Has any of you tried to setup a cluster of Linux running PS3's? I'm reading and thinking that, with about 16 of them you could build a super server, something that's cheaper than any other server with the same specs. Do you know anything about something like this?

Their are a few good articles out there.. one to look at would be the breaking of SSL with 200 PS3's in a cluster. I'm sure those chaps would have some advice on the best way to perform distributed computing with PS3's
