Never say "never"...

Here's a brand new WS-C2950 for $1108.  Why would the new 24*Gb + 10Gb 
uplink switches not be similarly priced in 3 or 4 years?  It's possible the 
manufacturing of XENPAK optics is an order of magnitude more 
difficult...  but I think there will be adequate competition in the 
marketplace soon enough.
