Hi guys,

I have a suggestion and request for the future Arduino.

Can you please add a Small network switch and a second Ethernet port.

This will make for daisy chaining these units much easier.

Making them be able to pass network information along without the need for network switch's and single run cables.

I do model railroading and I'm interested in developing a train tracking system with a modular layout that would benefit from not having to run back to a main network switch every time.

Model Railroad control systems ready feature a IN/Out communication protocol. It would be helpful if Arduino also had this feature.

I'm sure this would be useful for all sorts of other applications as well. allowing multiple units to be strung together. 

Thanks
