What got of this idea? The XO-1.5s that just arrived included a wall 
wart again - a bit larger than the XO-1 one, so I had to completely cut 
off the US -> CEE 7/4 plug adapter, making it unsafe to use as it's 
possible for a child to touch the live contacts when the power supply is 
plugged in about half-way. :-/
(Yes, I do realise this is probably about the same level of safety most 
US children are exposed to).
