Potentially neither, but they've not set anything in stone about what they 
may or may not do.  I'd guess they're more likely to look at doing something 
Xscale based, IE they've got an SA solution that they still sell so why 
reinvent something :)

Technically the cats is an ebsa with an isa bus (I believe)   I'd assumed 
that they were very different but they're not.  That said I don't know if 
anyone uses/still makes ebsa boards with netbsd.  The other issue is that 
I've got a cats, and can support a cats, and no-one seems to have admitted to 
having an ebsa board, or being willing to support it.
