C2N232 CPU choice question

Looking over the C2N232 interface over the past few days, I am curious as
to why the Atmel controller was chosen over a PIC or Scenix controller? 
The AT part is no doubt qualified to run the interface, but it seems the
Scenix and PIC stuff has more mindshare.  Was it simply a sourcing issue,
or the desire to have the hardware UART, or just personal preference?

I ask because I am contemplating an interface as well, and I see lots of
good choices for controllers.  The PIC parts look anemic compared to the
Scenix line (75MHz operation...), and the AT mega line looks interesting
as well, but I've been away for a while, so maybe I am missing something.
