 *lol*.  it's a tight fit without the video jack as it is.  it's just
doable, with SMT components.  appx 15mm for micro-hdmi, another 15mm
for micro-sd, 9 for usb-otg and 6 for 3.5mm audio, comes to 45mm, but
that's with no gaps.

 ok, good stuff.  well, just to re-affirm: the plan is to put
everything not going out via the PCMCIA or front-edge connectors onto
expansion headers just like on the beagleboard etc. so... yeah.
