It's less convenient; you can't have a single board with different mega328, to swap out the chip for different project. Or if your mega328 dies, (which is the most likely problem with arduinos) then you can't replace it easily.
Seems like this is a downgrade from the dip version, and should be at least cheaper than the original dip version.
No public wish lists :(
