:-(  While I have no immediate use for one, it's the sort of thing that
could be nice to have on hand.  If anyone's considering throwing
another one out, I'd be happy to pay a few bucks postage to save it -
it'd cost me something like $5 in parts to build one anyway....

That is *so* true.  I have an optical mouse I hacked to run at 9600 on
my main house machine at home, and it is *ever* so much nicer.  But,
why wouldn't you be able to use them?  Do older Suns have serial ports
for mouse/keyboard so crippled that they can't run at 4800 or 9600?
