    I have to admit, the RJ11 variant was from a long time ago, when Ethernet
    was still either Thickwire or Thinwire, and this Cat-N stuff was still in
    the future, so RJ45 wasn't exactly a common critter. For reference, the
    machine involved was an ATT 3B2-400, and some Blit terminals were in the mix,
    which tells you just how far back that was.. ;)
