Packaging a Sustainor like a MXR Bass D.I.+ (M80)

I don't know if we will ever see it, but I'd love to see a Sustainor inspired pedal like the MXR Bass D.I.+ (M80). Powering the pedal off XLR phantom power is really cool. Having a balanced connection to the board is another plus. Maybe have both pre and post distortion effects loops? Another thing that comes to mind is having the "Sustainor" pedal provide power to other pedals.

I'll bet it will work just fine for guitar as well.

My guess is the EQ would have to be worked on a little bit for it to sound ok. I plugged my guitar into my Bass Ace and it didn't sound all that great. But on the other hand, I don't know how much difference there is between typical Guitar and Bass amps flat EQ settings. It could be a little or a lot.
