OK, I just got a couple of board quotes with larger quantities. If I
can get an order of ~50 boards, I can drop the prices by $40! So the
pricing would be:
        "Bare" Board $35
        "kit" (includes all the parts) $85
        assembled and tested $250 (I still don't want to)

If I can get a preliminary count of folks who want one (or two or ...) I
can get the boards and parts ordered. I'd like to place the orders
during the first week of January.
