 TL informs me that all the power and reset signals for all 48 of the
RockPro64s tucked into the full-length 2U case are brought out to the
back panel.  an MCU (or MCUs) or SBC (or SBCs) may therefore be
connected directly to those in order to provide *individual* remote
power / reset management of all 48 RockPro64s.  DIY remote power
management, but it is actual remote power management.
