XO 1.5 baseboard for the XO-1

The XO 1.5 will have quite strong hardware compared to the XO-1.

The 1.5 baseboard looks compatible with the XO-1 case.

Will it be possible to put a 1.5 baseboard into an XO-1 casing?
Will the baseboard be available for the G1G1 buyers as a possible upgrade?

I would certainly pay $50 for the new baseboard and install it into my XO-1. It would make my XO much more useful. It would finally run Flash (eg youtube) and Java apps speedily. Not to mention OpenOffice.

Would be nice if OLPC could answer such questions. They are important.

Guess this never happened? I still think this would be a great idea. I'd then be able to donate my original, perfectly functioning board for repairs, so it would end up being more than a G1G1 at that point.
