    One warning if you solder the 90 degree header pins to the pads as depicted in the Connection Tutorial: I went this route, then installed the unit on a breadboard. Worked flawlessly while designing circuit. Once things were working I removed it from the breadboard so I could mount it permanently. Unfortunately just the pull on the pin from this removal was enough to lift one of the ground pads; it took me a while to spot what was going on. I was able to apply a greenwire ‘fix’ by soldering a jumper from the remaining pad to a bit of trace I exposed with an xacto, but still kind of a shame; now I have to order another one because I don’t trust my connection will stand up to abuse. Next time I’ll mount it on standoffs and just solder a cable in place.

No public wish lists :(
