Looking at parts for availability next - checking the SD socket to see if make can go in (digikey carries several, the mechanical drawings are not the easiest to interpret) or if the Sparkfun library part is unique.

The maker is a company called 4UTechnology and they will sell these direct, but its not super clear how to buy them. Through SparkFun its about $4.00, which is very high.On my prototype, this is the first thing on the list to change for production.
I haven't figured out how to make symbols yet to be able to add it into a design.
...As long as I have your eyes - my hand routing resulted in a bunch of drill size error. Something about 0.012" vias on traces that are 0.01 wide, which appears to be the size that eagle uses when it autoroutes. I opened the vias to the first standard size listed, 0.019xxx, the DRC with Fusion rules checker still calls them out. I don't know what to do fix it.
What'd I'd really like is to just be able to mod & save the existing socket - it really just needs the pads moved left & right a little. Is there an easy way to do that?
