Any Word On A Losmandy GOTO Mount?

I am the proud owner of a 10" LX200 and have come to rely on some of the many features of this telescope. The GOTO capabilies make CCD imaging so much easier (if that is possible to say). Precise polar alignment is a five minute task using the iteration method. This in itself is enough to make it worth it to spend the extra money for a GOTO mount. The only negative thing that I can say about the LX200 is it falls short in it's carrying capacity. I cringe every time I want to piggy back a guidescope on it. I heard some rumors that Losmandy may be introducing a GOTO version of their mount. Can somebody share some information with me on this subject?
