[c-nsp] Cisco 6500 mounting with cables

Some cable management products for 6500 have a solid plate which
forces all cables to run right. Like this one:

If cables are run to the left, how do you deal with a failed fan module?

My preference is to use Panduit Plugpacks (http://bit.ly/10ID89A) at
the front of the switch, ensuring that all patch work is done
elsewhere, not at the front of the switch. Plugpacks collate up to 12
cables into a single removable unit, so that you can be confident that
each cable is back where it belongs when maintenance is complete.
