I'm less concerned about knob size than I am about panel finish and color. Getting
the same powder coat and gloss can keep it from really sticking out in a system (I
almost can't believe I just typed those words. I usually don't care too much about
asthetics). I saw a picture of a module next to some Moog modules
recently and the mismatch of finish really did stick out.

It does look like your board mounting will be different. I would be nice keep to
the same limits Paul has used with the 4" or so depth. It would be bad if the folks
with SKB cases couldn't fit your module in the case.

I'd certainly go for at least one of these modules!
