And I don't feel a 1/4" gap to be too bad, but if we use Larry's multi/bus
strips then we have a "different problem" which might alleviate the problem
of the 1/4" gap -- as it stands, I'm really leaning toward using these strips
below each row of MOTM.

I agree that I'd prefer the panels to be flush in my system as well, and I
also would agree not to use them for MOTM if Paul had some rails made for
cabinet use -- and it would be great to see him make the strips as well so
they were cosmetically compatible, and use the "official MOTM screw." But I
feel that Paul has his hands full with other stuff and I don't know if
there's enough interest to warrant distracting him. I would imagine that such
rails would be about 24U (like Moe wants) and I'd prefer those to my 21U
rails as well. Anybody else?
