For a while recently, you could buy Hydras from Simtec from their bargin bin bit on their website. It would appear they did make quite a few. There was also a threading module that was floating about that would take advantage of the Hydra, too.

I think the main reasons it never really happened was that the StrongARM came along, which wasn't compatable with the Hydra, and lessened its usefulness a little, and that RISC OS itself wouldn't support it, only very specialised applications.
