Well, that was interesting.  Not much response, so I take it that this 
isn't a particularly important item for most people.

I'll just drop this then; my proposed solution didn't get any good 
reviews first time around, and based on the lack of interest, I don't 
see any real point in re-opening that controversy.  However, when 
openmoko gets around to resolving this problem, I'll be interested to 
see how the "official" solution is implemented.  Until then, keep those 
Neos plugged in!
