Utica / Dunkirk "AI" Boilers (MAC/MAH Series)

These look like they might be the inevitable next big step in boiler design. Sort of like replacing points/capacitor with computer controlled electronic ignition in cars. But there were some hiccups in the early days of electronic ignition.
Has anyone seen one of these run for a while? It does look like the initial validation/calibration of the combustion sensors might be a little fussy.
But once it's been set up, it should stay perfectly "tuned" for some time, even if gas pressure varies, combustion air or exhaust vents get partly clogged, etc. Could be a little safer and (if it works) more reliable than other mod/cons.
Has anyone had some experience with these things, or do you have any thoughts on how well they're likely to work in the real world? They look great and I expect that eventually all boilers will have similar combustion controls, but is this technology really ready?
