That would be the other list :) The one of things we may choose to
remove/ignore at our leisure. When I talked to Telit a while ago,
it didn't sound as if there was any problem getting those modules.

Back then, the lead time would have been 1-2 months, but the
modules were still brand-new, so this has probably changed now.

Case and connector would be the main obstacles. You'd also have to
find out how to program the controller chip on the LCM. The
resolution isn't so critical. Of course, if it gets too large,
you'll starve the memory bus :)

Yup. First SMT runs can be cruel.

Good idea ! That would indeed help when it's time to decide who gets
which set of unresolved issues.
