I have enough old 15-pin males in my grab bag to not have to resort to _that_,
thank you very much. ;-)

Anyway, I dimly remember, from my Mac development days, reading the Apple
technote which shows which three pins are used for that. I even remember
the _other_ technote which expanded the previous one by the strategic
replacement of bridge wires with diodes.

Well, I'll be off to Google for it.  :-/
