I'm going to side with Chris and support releasing numbers when we have 
accurate info rather than speculative information like was released for 
XO-1.  I _still_ (last week actually) deal with deployments that think 
the XO uses 2 watts because of an estimated number that was used in 
speech on the XO-1 prior to when we had solid info.  They are quite 
surprised when they find the XO-1 has a peak draw of 17W.

The A2 boards only booted an image with working wlan at the end of the 
week. We need a bit more time to make sure everything is in place for 
such a measurement to be accurate.

We will get some numbers soon.
