Sure.  I just didn't assume because some kits are priced around volume
orders of PCB+parts and it screws with the inventory to sell bare
boards.  I'm usually happiest to buy bare board kits or board+weird

Sure.  I've been on the support end of selling through-hole kits, but
I wouldn't want to have to support SMD kits.  I have bought and
assembled many kits with SMD parts and have enjoyed success, but not
everyone's builds go smoothly (and even I've had to occasionally fix
my own screwups).

And I'm still interested in at least one MEM11A when it gets to that.
I have this 11/20 that needs some stuffing.
