Ah, OK.  Thanks, Markus.

In which case, bridge-wise, it may be a bit easier (or more difficult,
depending) than I thought.

Jeff, it might be helpful if you could crack open the device and tell us

Hi-res digital photos are always helpful :-)  If you can take photos,
please post them to a website (like bttv-gallery) and post links here.
