A bite sized, useful smd kit does sound like a nice idea.
In my dreams it would provide both a keyer and audio frequency readout, or maybe an idea for a second module.
I can't project the market, but with a board few of us should fear the smd. A decent magnifier makes it possible even for those of us with degraded vision.
Unrelated, a nice full George Dobbs presentation now at soldersmoke.
