I'm probably grossly wrong, but the people here make high speed board
layout look fairly easy, and from the sounds of it, it just isn't
costing us that much to get boards made and assembled for us.  However,
they probably aren't choosing to ream us soley because they know that we
will likely go with them for production when we are ready to.
