Interest in the case only has re-emerged, and it appears cases are being made
available. It gives me the impression someone else just bought out the molds for
the cases or all the leftover hardware from the last group who was going to
sell a pre-packaged machine.  IIRC the pc cases weren't cheap, and even with
an adapter to make a vintage C64 keyboard work was not 100% compatible with
some emulators' key mapping.
