   Duh, I should read to the end of my mail spool before I reply. ;)   
This is very much along the lines of what I suggested in my earlier  
email, but I was envisioning the two sides of that serial link being  
on the same board.  Running a nice narrow cable carrying LVDS signals  
up to the lamp panel is a very appealing idea.
