Hi Glenn!

Yes, I think this is a given. The ability to break out a board is
important. To that end, I'm toying with the idea of a standard debug
connector that attaches to the FSB. Probably a bad idea, actually, since
all the boards are different, but... we'll chat about it Friday.

That's a very good point.

Yes, and good luck to us with that :)

We'll discuss this in depth on Friday, and try to come up with our first
"FSB" requirements for the solar boards and the upcoming battery cards.
