I have a question for all owners of iSkin cases for the mini.

I just purchased an iTrip mini and I knew that it wouldn't work with the new iSkin cases for the mini. Rather than fool with taking it out of the case every time I want to use the iTrip, I thought I would just take an exacto knife to the skin that is between the hold button and the headphone port. Then I could just peel it away when I wanted to add the iTrip to the top. Here is my question....do you think that will alter the case in some way so that it is loose enough for the screen protector to slip and slide too much when not using the iTrip?

an exacto (sp?) knife and patience. That's the first thing that popped in my head and seems like the cleanest way to handle the job.

do you think that it would be likely to come off, or fall out if the bottom is cut? I doubt it, since the iskin is sooo sticky.
