I get your point about the flicker-fixer but I'll wait and see how neat the solution is before making a judgement. If it plugs in neatly, uses the correct hole at the back of the machine and doesn't need shoe-horning into the case or involve lots of ribbon cable, then I don't think there'll be many complaints. It's probably not fair to compare it with the current Indivision AGA for example.
The graphics boards are 'options' but not 'optional' so hopefully they'll be designed with that in mind.
