The front-end of a neutrino factory (the part of the facility between the
target and the first linear accelerator) represented a large fraction,
about $40\,\%,$ of the
total facility costs as discussed in a rather comprehensive feasibility
study (FS2)~\cite{fs2}. Several recent developments, briefly summarize in
this article, lead to the idea that a new design for the front end may be
possible and that it is significantly less expensive than the front end
used in FS2.
