They have already released specs for some older cards.  I wonder how
they feel about people desiring to write drivers for linux when the
older cards never had support added?

At this point the older cards are kinda pricy though.  I believe it
would cost me less to buy a Delta 44 than it would to buy the equivelent
Marian card, and I suspect the Delta44 is a bit nicer.  But people in
Europe might find the pricing different.

PS, if anyone wants to send me (or sell me a used one for well under
retail pricing) a Marc 2 or 4 of the sort that specs are
posted for, I'd be happy to write an alsa driver for it.  I have
experience writing linux drivers for other hardware under NDA.  If
someone did this, once I had the Marc driver done, I'd be happy to try
to approach Marian about UCON information.
