This advice is huge, and often only learned after both being the guy to wire
up two fully populated chassis (240ish rj45's) in a rack, and then come to
the realization that you can't remove blades without unplugging all the
cables of the four blades surrounding it. That isn't the worst of it, the
realization that any future blade replacements on either chassis will cost
you that same pain is what really hurts.
