I -think- he's saying that he can purchase the bare motherboard/CPU out of
a Revo, but that he's too cheap to buy the powerswitch/USB module as a
spare part.

As such, he'd like to know if the power switch interfaces to a reasonably
standard header to which he could bodge up his own switch.

I'm afraid I can't be bothered to open either of my Revo's to find out,
