	An excellent point ... But I am THAT tired of dealing with an endless 
number of power supplies. I would still like the OPTION.

	Even worse than symmetrical connectors are keyed connectors that people 
don't take advantage of. I have way to many narrow SCSI ribbon cables 
that don't have the key. The Linux Adaptec driver just spits out this 
message endlessly.
