I've seen it. Pricey audiophile stuff. If they'd release a module that
has ¼" TS connectors at instrument level I'll be the first to buy it.
There are similar projects being set up for the RPi by the way:

I've been testing a Cubieboard2 the last three months. It's an awesome
device, I can recommend it if you're planning to use an ARM based
embedded device for musical projects. It's powerful, has audio IO, runs
very well and stable with a RT kernel, is easy to hack and performs very
well with JACK running at low latencies. The onboard audio has no
problems running at -p64 (you need a patch for the codec though).
