FWIW, someone with a *lot* of interest in big storage systems recently 
posted to the linux-ide-arrays list that 3ware have reversed their 
decision and will be getting back into the IDE raid card business 
(including releasing the 7850 RSN).  A press release is supposed to be 
forthcoming.  The Escalade pages are already back up.
