  1. So you get one of these, an 0-Coast, and you have a lot of nice modules in a very easy-to-use, cross-patchable, portable, fairy inexpensive system. Hmm..

  2. Yeah this + neutron and maybe another semi-modular, and you have a sort of cheaper modular system without a bunch of separate utility modules.
