Electrix has published a good amount of information on what Repeater is 
spec'd to do. All in one place, and without having to deduce the projected 
feature set from hints.

As someone that's been pushing, supporting and even defending Repeater 
since late July, I'd like to know at least the spec'd feature set for EDP 
++. :)

Yeup. It's a bunch of folks jumping in on faith. I buy probably 97% of my 
gear sight unseen. I've been burned too, but I've gotten smarter and have 
developed a better sense of reading between the lines.

People are different... But, folks are also asking for more up-front 
information on what EDP ++ will be... Maybe they _will_ wait and see what 
comes of it. Or, maybe they won't.

But they are in fact trying to be informed impulse buyers. :)
