Yes, it would be nice to have one driver for all.  I'll see if I can 
gather enough documentation about them to determine the feasability of 
the merger, or at least write a framework to incorporate other cards as 
somwone else gathers the information.
Spectracom was the only one I could find that had a Linux 2.6 kernel, 
though.  Maybe other will be forthcoming.
I believe Spectracom and Symmetricom are the only remaining companies in 
the business, having bought up Bancomm, True Time, KSI, and Datum 
between them.
