Sure -- this is essentially the PalmOS solution.

Well...  I'm happy to wait a little while for small tweaks, but you're
asking for actual circuitry changes.  I'm not involved in production,
but I've got to think this would add months -- I don't want to wait
that long.

I don't expect to want to do that often, if at all.

I expect to be adding the phone to my nightly backups at home (I run
RAID0 on my main file server -- a fact that saved me last week when
I killed one of my disk drives through a bit of hardware stupidity on
my part that even I find hard to believe -- and every night a cron job
runs an rsync that backs up everything in the house to a separate

So if I ever want to copy the contents of my phone to another MicroSD
card, I expect to be doing it from a hard drive.
