	Alternatively, one could use a digital cross-connect.

True, but a 66 block will work.  Usually.  And is easily re-punched.

Really.  Seriously, who cannot do wire wrap?  It takes, literally, 5  
minutes to learn to do it.  And that's with a "screw driver" wirewrap  
tool. With one of these  
[http://www.datacomtools.com/catalog/Wire-Wrap-tools/jonard-wire-wrap-gu
n.htm],  
it takes about 10s, and you get a consistent, near perfect wrap every  
time. (yes, it's a bit pricey, but very worth the cost even if you only

use it once to wire a single panel.)

PS: That's just the gun; it'll need a tip/sleeve.  I recommend a
complete  
kit.
