By the way: It might by not so easy to find the correct socket and to
build it in. In such cases, I've always found it to be a reasonable
option to have a cable soldered to the pcb, hanging out by that hole
and having a somewhat "external socket".
It's certainly ugly, but imho not more than butchering the plastic
case to get another socket to fit.
