This is getting completely off-topic, but I'm a little surprised that
there isn't a PCI express card that has a PCI Express to PCI bridge, and
a cable that goes to an external box with, perhaps, 4 PCI card slots.

You mean like this?  ;-)  

CGS-1PCIe4X PCI Express to Quad PCI Slots Expansion Box 

I found this about a year ago when I was looking for something else...
It would be more attractive if the price wasn't so high...
