Yes.  Nicolas Welte is the one to ask.  I just wrote to him this week
to get a status update.  He already has the cassette port connectors
(the most difficult part to source).  He had some issues with a zener
diode circuit that should allow the firmware to be flashed without
setting any jumpers, and he didn't know how to test the serial bus
connection (to be used later, if I get around to completing the
experimental firmware I wrote in the summer of 2003).

Nicolas, can you estimate the schedule?

BTW, for unlucky people like me who no longer have a serial port on their
main computer, there might be some hope.  I've asked Patryk (silverdr)
if he could test his Keyspan USB serial adapter on PC hardware.  That
adapter works fine with the C2N232 on Mac OS X.  I even found a bearably
priced (35 EUR) local source for them.  PCMCIA based RS-232 adapters would
work for sure, but they are out of my budget, up to several hundred EUR. :-(
