HostMantis Ditches DirectAdmin for cPanel. Price Hikes Coming?

HostMantisWord leaked recently that HostMantis is planning to ditch DirectAdmin.  Quoting HostMantis support:

we’re in the process of planning a full migration to cPanel for all customers following our acquisition of HostMantis so even if we moved the account to DirectAdmin it would only get moved back to cPanel in the coming weeks.

One wonders if the price difference between DirectAdmin and the more expensive cPanel is going to make honoring HostMantis DirectAdmin plan pricing feasible.
