It's gone. I hear XMIT is working on a round 2 which I am looking forward to.

Yep!:

We're adding a click leaf! This will give Alps-like audible and tactile feedback when typing.

He's also talking about offering a clicky-retrofit kit for existing owners.

I'm split on the issue, personally. I love klicky, klack keebs (or KKK). But Hall Effect switches are the most legendarily smooth switches, as they require no physical contact for actuation—just a magnet slightly shifting to alter the flow of electrons in an adjoining part. Adding a bump and/or click to such a subtly magnificently thing seems like, well:
