Subject: [Leica] New-style RRS Arca plate-tried it?

I see that Really Right Stuff has released a skeletonized version of the
B30 Leica M quick release plate. Has anyone gotten it yet? It looks also
that it should be very easy to trim it's size down, though it means that
you'll be clamping the camera off-center (not so good for panoramas, I
think), and that it won't sit flat on a table if you do. Tempting
modification, though. So far, I've given the QR system loads as hefty as
a 500 f/5 apo refractor telescope with no problems at all. The poor Arca
B1 is definitely overloaded though!
