Sunrise for SunTour?

I've owned some nice SunTour components over the years.  All but forgotten except for those who have been into cycling for a while but the company dominated the bike component industry back in the 70s and 80s controlling as much as 60% of the market.  They are back.  It looks like the company is not seeking to reenter the market and trying to compete with the racing components niche dominated by SRAM, Campagnolo, and Shimano.  Think more along the lines of practical, pretty, and utilitarian.  I'm curious if we might end up seeing these stocked at Rivendell bikes.
