Maybe.  I don't actually have a D710 myself.. not yet, anyway.  I'm not 
really clear on what can be done through the other connectors.  Is there 
a way to get it to send a message through the serial interface?

Well, it's not going to be on this first version at least.  The board is 
really small..  I had to go with a QFN package to get the MCU to fit. 
That's going to be fun to solder for the first few prototypes.
