I don't know about the chassis itself, but according to the description in
the '80 Microcomputer Interfaces Handbook, 3 out of 4 boards are the same
(the RKV substitutes an M7268/M7269 pair for the M7257).  Actually I'll bet
the packaging was a big pain since Q-bus boxes don't have the +/-15 V that
Unibus boxes have and lots of old devices need -- so I could certainly see
having a separate box just for the RKV backplane.

Sounds like a doozy!
