To anyone considering these-- beware that, even if they work exactly as
they were built to, they may not work for you.  I once got a bunch of
boxes which are approximately as Dave describes, but which dated back
to before the 10baseT standards stabilized.  They would work fine when
connected to one another via a crossed cable, but would not work with
any other 10baseT hardware I tried them with - typical symptom is a
link light which is glowing faintly, and no traffic making it through.

Now, it may be that Dave's transceivers do work with modern equipment.
But it also might be that they don't.
