PS. The reason I'm asking now, vs. last time when I enthusiastically cut 
open the IBM Simon hard-shell pack, is because this pack doesn't seem to 
have much air gap between the case and the cells. Little room for error. 
Whereas the Simon pack seemed to have more empty space.

Note to self -- break out Dremel, wear gloves/eye protection. :)
