Using video memory on PS3 e.g. as SWAP?

Hi all,

looking at the PS3 as one of the few PowerPC workstation options the RAM
is obviously quite limitted with just 256MB. I wonder if the 256MB of
video memory can be mapped or at least be used as super-fast SWAP?

Or are there news regarding accessing the video chip from Linux beside
the unaccelerated frame-buffer?
