PPC G5s upgradeable?

I had the impression when they came out that G5s were not going to be processor upgradable. Seeing this auction made me wonder otherwise. Those look like regular CPU connectors on the m/b. Is it just a matter of waiting for the upgrade companies to figure this stuff out and get a supply from IBM? Was my original impression wrong or right?

I believe youll be able to up

I believe youll be able to upgrade them, but I think that the bus speed is dependant on the processor that was installed. Also, I imagine the heatsinks are different on each model.
