Just curious - in all the backplane photos I've seen, it appears the
fragile wire wrapping is always exposed without a cover protecting it from
other components, fallen screws and wayward fingers in the computer cabinet.
Was it ever standard practice to put a cover over these? I couldn't imagine
debugging or repairing a backplane...
