Hm? I have four USB devices. Each one has a different connector.
(Though that statement is slightly cheating, since two of them are just
male and female of "the same connector" - one device has a captive
cable rather than a socket. That device has also been cannibalized,
since I was unable to make it work. But the other three devices each
have a completely different socket.)

This is a *feature*?!
