I'm interested to know if Mk2/4 owners use on board DB25 connector?

No, until my controller is laying down naked on the table. I'm planing to do a homemade box for it, then I think I will find this connector useful to reduce amount of wires.

My preference would be to have the DB 25 and the USB-connector together on one side of the board for easy external access when the board is installed in a box.

If this is too much of a redesign I would rather prefer a 26 pin ribbon cable connector than a DB 25.

Plus I would like to have other signals assigned to the DB25 as right now.
A typical set up is to have the motor drivers and the power supply in one box
and all the manual controls in a separate box/case closer to the machine.
Therefore for easy cabling I would prefer to take out the motor driving signals (step/dir) and replace them by the jog signals and pot signals.
