I wrote, then deleted, an extremely funny (to me) response to Bill's
message, and will instead simply say that anyone tempted to reply to this
should search the archives for "master/slave" or "female connector". If
there's anything not mentioned in the threads that show up, it's either
brilliantly original, or not worth saying... ;-)
