I actually do wonder how common they are. Of course, EZRadioPRO
already gets a black mark for not being compatible with any of
the PHYs currently specified for IEEE 802.15.4, which is the
basis for several RF protocol stacks.

Not to customers, but I could see a case for a programmable
dongle makers of RF sensor and such could use, particularly if
these sensors use an Si10xx and thus have the same MCU core as
Silab's dongle.
