What would be the chances that thing is a usb device internally, and 
that the usb<->parallel adaptor is in fact a seperate item that 
could be bypassed by a knowledgeable bit of hacking?

In terms of operating speed, Mario would be far better off to go 
trade it back for the usb model, and I'd recommend that route if 
the dealer is amenable and wants a happy customer.  I'd assume that 
wherever Mario is, there is also a 1260u available.
