There's also the 23 pin nearly-DB connector used on the Amiga for video and
floppy. They were pretty hard to get hold of even in the Amiga's heyday and so
not a few SCART cables were made by taking a DB25 and waving a hacksaw at it.

FWIW, I've got about twenty male 23 pin connectors (but no shells) if anybody
has a use for them.
