Cool.  This will allow some slightly insane but also possibly useful power
chaining.  For example, it might be a reasonable backup for when a child's
power brick breaks.

Obviously chains longer than 2 are an iffy proposition ... but might be
worth testing just to make sure they don't crash and/or burn.
