We're aware of the concerns about firmware.  We discuss these items 
often - it was the first topic of conversation when I came in to work 
this morning.   The only specific comment I'd make now on the 4 items 
below is that #4 is the design of the Orion and Orion II - the receivers 
are not phase-locked together.  There is no firmware change available to 
alter this.

Rob Sherwood has been talking back and forth with us often about the 
direction of the Orion and we provided some alternate beta firmware for 
him to use per his suggestions.
