Maybe. Maybe not. I've seen extended keyboards for PC's on sale for as
little as $29.95 while non-exteded Mac keyboards seem to start at about
$100. If someone could make a serial to ADB adapter and sell it
profitably for say $30 or $40 they'd stand an excellent chance of making
some real money. I freely admit that I have no idea what would be
involved in making such an item and it's entirely possible that the
components would cost too much to sell the finished product that cheaply,
but if not...
