A proper outside case should give you both protection for the FR *and* a stylus holder. I must agree with Rask on this one.

And your FR is not rounded any more, because stylus would have to stick out of the case (otherwise you cannot retrieve it easily).

Again this has been discussed for quite a long time [1].
