 a... a... oh!  awesome idea!  actually might be able to get away with
a separate daughterboard.  can't use a flex PCB, mounting these
connectors is enough of a bitch as it is.

 PCB interlocks. size of cutout matches size of daughterboard.

 very true.

 space.  and EMI (over the connector).

 i could potentially try it for the passthrough card, which is a lower
production cost.
