Default Simple questions on the replica kit

From the pictures I see, it looks like some stuff was added to the back panel of the MITS 680. In another picture it appears that these are not connected. Is something planned?

Inquiring minds, etc...

On another front, is it possible to order the kit WITHOUT the transformers (switching supplies). My idea is to use "proper" supplies (+12, +5, -12) and bypass the regulators. Not exactly a true replica, but I suspect a "cooler" idea. I can get small supplies pretty cheaply at the local surplus store.

I was also wondering how the kit (original/replica) is expanded (or is it at all?)? The limitd amount of memory is a litle difficult. My 6800 box (I built it myself, etc...) has 60k of memory. It works quite nicely (lots of 2147's spread out over memory cards).

I guess I just like the front panel. I don't have one on my box.
