Any opinions on purchasing from Koolu?

I got one from Koolu and it's a completely stock model.  Apparently they can't yet afford the special silk screened Debian tartan weave, and they can't yet get debian+android running on the phones, so the version I got was the same one everyone else is getting.

They ship from Canada, so you may have to pay customs their bribe to get it.

The only two US distributors are Koolu, and only lists the Neo 1973 - not freerunner, and has been ignoring my e-mails for a week and a half, so I guess my only choice is Koolu.

I've been hesitant to purchase from them because of this, but I'm wondering if anyone else has purchased an 850 Freerunner from Koolu and how that went?  Did you get your phone?  Have any problems with Koolu?  Do you have any problems installing any of the openmoko builds/stacks?
