[sdiy] Today's Pet Peeve

Most of what I've seen people describe as skiffs (usually on MuffWiggler)
have been only slightly deeper than the rails, up to maybe 50mm or so.

When designing my own module PCBs (which are almost always perpendicular to
the panel because various reasons) I try to keep them shallower than the
Elby rails I use, so around 38mm

I suppose if your PCB is parallel to the panel and all your components are
on the top side, you might achieve a depth of ~25-30mm once you account for
the power cable? It really doesn't leave much room for a bus board and
standoffs... and what even is ventilation/airflow anyway?
