One hears rumors of enterprise grade hardware manufacturers floating product 
ideas to customers (cough) but rumors persist that paying customers actually 
calculate bandwidth issues for their applications and generally say no. The 
ones who say yes tend to be academics in strange corners of the money / compute 
cluster CPU vs IO trade space, and are ok with building their own.
