I've done designs with way better chips than Realtek in the meantime (it's been 14 years!), and I don't want to go that low any more. Realtek is re-defining the meaning of "low-cost" with every chip(set) that they release, and that doesn't help quality or usability. Having worked with Broadcom (which is the other end of the scale), I have something different in mind. I do agree that prices for Zorro networking cards are insane.
