I have never seen such a beast - but then, I've never looked for one;
I'd be more interested in one that goes the other way, to use a Sun
keyboard on a peecee.

It may well not be an offer you want to take advantage of, but I have
enough spare Sun keyboards that I'd be happy to send you one if you
want.  Drop me a note off-list and we'll figure out the details.

I know 13W3-to-DE15 passive adapter cables exist; I own two of them
(one of which is in regular use at $ORK).  Unfortunately I didn't buy
either one, so I don't know where they came from.  If you want, I can
probably roust out the people who did buy them and find out.
