Yaesu VL-2000, Desktop Shortwave Linear Amplifier

Yaesu displayed a non-working VL-2000 at Dayton last year. I wonder if it will ever hit the market. I own a VL-1000 and it works perfectly, except that it gives only 800 watts out. So, the VL-2000 would be the perfect amplifier: full legal limit output, fully automatic, integrates with FT-1000, 2000, and other transceivers, instant on. What else could you ask for?
