RE: C2N232 availability?

Please add me to the list of those waiting (for a couple of years) for the
next batch of C2N232. I don't know what your minimum run will be, but I will
purchase 3 of them if that would help reach some magic number. If there is
no magic involved, I would still like to get 2 of them.

Thank you.
