I would also buy it if it was true IR (native blue sensitivity and IR dye, not panchromatic wit a bit of NIR thrown in for good measure). We have semi-IR solutions from Rollei and Ilford already. It should be easier to make the emulsion adsorb just the IR sensitizing dye instead of all the dyes needed for PAN and also some dye for IR.
This would also derail my plan to standardize on Acros/Delta 100 and Rollei IR, but I'm willing to live with that
