    This works well with the 6-pin mini-DIN sockets Sparkfun sells. However, most mini-DIN sockets I have seen use side tabs for locking into place, and they won't fit without breaking off the tabs or adding notches to the sides of the board. It would be nice if the next revision already had notches to accommodate these tabs.
