WAAAY OT, but....

Check out Dupline - it's a wired switch replacement system.  I've been 
trying to convince them to build a direct PC interface - the driver 
would be very simple, it's just bitbanging on a couple of pins - but the 
voltages are different.   And it's rock reliable and cheap.  It is made 
for industry, but their modules could be used in a house for control....
