i'm not sure i get this.  it seems to me that a small "doodad" with a
female jack and a three inch cord with a male connector on it would be
better.  it wouldn't force the "user" to provide a second phone cord
in order for the doodad to be used.  you could then connect it between
the handset and the handset cord, between the handset cord and the
base, or between the base and the wall.  no?
