Mass production is already happening as we speak/write 
(http://opensource.sfsu.edu/node/421). We will probably buy a few at SF 
State so that we can conduct mesh networking experiments. We did this a 
few years ago by employing laptops in cars and forming a mobile mesh. It 
was way too difficult though to form the mesh and "hold it in formation" 
because of the software and meshing protocols at the time. The XO seems 
a lot better. Here's a short excerpt of the experiment 

Let me know if anyone is interested in helping us out.
