I do agree with this... Also if the cable is sold only by Openmoko it 
should be there, since it's a so important thing for using the phone as 
a "standard phone" (I not always have my PC around, and neither I should 
have electronics knowledge to build my own cable).

If some people doesn't agree with its "philosophy", he could simply 
choose not to include it on the pack, or simply, to resell it...
Imho it would be a too "closed" view, btw!

Ok, this could be a workaround, but just a workaround for me...

Of course for keeping up our idea and to help who loves self-making 
you'll have absolutely to publish these informations!
