Shipping date DMR announced at PMA

Now that it's April, has anyone heard of a ship date for the Digital Module-R? I can find nothing on the Leica homepage, or anywhere else, for that matter. I'm guessing (hint of sarcasm here) that Leica will announce a mid-summer date, or else make no announcement at all, considering their Leica A.G.'s financial troubles. Even with the years of testing and R&D, the marketing of the Module, possible software bug, etc. might make it financially prohibitive to even put the thing out. Any other thoughts out there?
