The inline adapter is still slated for production, but due to supplier
issues didn't ship with the ramp units.   Instead, the ramp units
(and some early production) will ship with a stock white wall-mount

Would you rather that I held up your test unit while we waited
for the supplier to provide them ?

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. :-/
