I'll write the PET version so that it supports both devices #1 and #2.
In that way, you can always use the port on the back, which is #1 or #2,
depending on how the main board is installed in the case.

Well, I was going to install the cassette port connector so that its
narrow part (excluding the base part that has holes for mounting screws)
is entirely outside the DB9-DB25 adapter case.  If the mounting screw
holes of the DB25 end of the DB9-DB25 adapter case make the whole
combination too wide, they can be sawed off, and the package can be
secured with some glue if needed.
