Since the model B has an Ethernet port, will it support power over Ethernet. For those of us that would like to use the r. pi in some creative projects, it would be nice to only have to feed it one cable for power and networking.

It is my understanding that at this time the R-pi will not support PoE :( I'm not sure if that's because the LAN 9512 chip can't support it, or because the cost of integrating it out be too high, but for now the answer is no.

thats sad, PoE or over USB would be really great. But still, the raspi is the thing i waited years for :D
