If you have never seen the innards of a PCMCIA card, you will be
disappointed.  It's not easier to modify than the bridge.  I know that
it's not easy to access pins in Ricoh bridges, but it's not easier to deal
with components inside the PCMCIA card.  I suggest that you get a plx9052
based card or ti1410, which are relatively easy to modify.
