Hey this sounds good :)))

Quick ideas:
(<kidding>Sean and all official Neo1973 developer please stop reading
 here - this ideas should give you no reason to do not use the last days
 untill shipping to add some smart solderpoints on the circuit board
 that everyone who will use the SPI, uart I2C or audio-in could hack 
 it and spend some additional jacks to the Neo1973)
The external USB could be catched internaly,
the SIM slot could be multiplexed - send a high on one SIM conector
and you could use a small chip to switch this port:
In some of earlier threads are already some ideas around switching
and multiplexing SDIO of the mikroSD and SIM slot

Swithing the SIM port:

Happy hacking ;)
