My version of the ubiquitous USB serial port gizmo

The current version works fine electrically, but some of the silkscreen wound up on the wrong layer, so I've fixed that. Another minor issue is that the GPIO I chose to use for the !FORCEOFF line is defined as !SLEEP, but there's another called !POWER that's a slightly better choice. Lastly, the 10 uF cap is just a little too close to the USB connector for comfort, so it has to move just a touch North.

Other than that, the design is perfect, and the next step is designing the 3D printed enclosure for it. I'm not sure how that's going to happen, as I have zero skills there.
