Main problem with the first one is that the peg for mounting the floppy is right besides the header. And mounting it using a female header on the header-board, below the dualTOS, won’t work since it’ll hit the motherboard. At least I think came to that conclusion when I looked into it.
It does actually clear the floppy peg, though it is a snug fit:

I think with a short enough set of header pins, it would fit below, though again, it would be pretty snug.

On future boards I will move the header towards the edge of the board.. Though not sure if another batch will be done or not yet, got 200pcbs made last time so may never all sell.

If I get the urge to tinker with it, I will see how easy it is to put underneath.

Future boards will come with a footprint for adding an optional ATTiny as well, right? :)
