Subject: [slim] How much demand for an audio rack sized Squeezebox?

I just installed the new G display for my Squeezebox and I'm loving it!!!
After the recent discussions around some demand for a full audio rack sized
squeezebox in a professional looking aluminum or steel enclosure I'm
wondering if people on the list could indicate how much demand there is for
such an item.

I'm visualizing the Squeezebox installed into an aluminum or black metal
chassis with all of the standard outputs on the back. Rack mount ears might
be available as a separate kit. Some hard buttons on the faceplate to do
basic navigation would make a lot of sense here too and shouldn't be too
difficult to incorporate since I think that they could use the geek
connector to function.

I'm envisioning a $399 price point for this hypothetical "squeezebox
audiophile edition" and I would definitely order one at this price if such a
beast became available.

Anyone else have any interest/comments?
