Agreed, the only difference between an RJ12/RJ11 and MMJ is the tab
location, which can be easily sliced off (though that usually makes for
a loose fitting connector).

And if anyone in the US wants one, I can do up to, say, 25ft MMJ->MMJ or
MMJ->RJ(12/45) cables for $5 + shipping. I had a few takers last time
