Looks good :) are any of these getting to resellers in the UK?

From the look of the PDF, the existing IR cable is removed, and a new one is connected that only plugs into one of the connectors (pin 1). Do pin 1 and 2 really need to be cut? Can't they just be left with nothing connected. Also can't the IR cable just be removed, without any cutting?
