Hmm, well I guess we will see whether they are buying or selling...

However, if they are being strict on choice of software, then using an
"unreleased" software version is a strawman which is easy to put up. 
There is a bunch of cool stuff in the current git and I think it would
be great to get a release out fairly imminently? 

Oh, my freetime project at the moment is to try and get the GPIO
interrupts working as a kernel PPS module on the Alix board (hoping to
get higher accuracy than using a serial port...)  This coupled with an
old Garmin 18 appears to allow for the possibility of a nice Stratum 1
time server for around the $100 ish mark... Could be cool!  Will keep
you informed how it goes...
