Are there any plans to produce/upgrade line cards for other switches (4k and 6ks particularly) that can take copper GBICs? I'd certainly find that useful...

The copper GBIC currently available for the Cat2900 and Cat3500XL is not
supported in any other products. The reason it is not supported is that it
requires a much larger current draw than a the GBIC standard specifies. All
other GBIC interfaces currently shipping on products do not provide enough
power for the WS-G5482 1000baseT GBIC. The Cat2900 and Cat3500XL were
engineered to allow for extra power requirements of this GBIC.
