XL-1s and Firestore FS-4

When using the Firestore FS-4 with the XL1-s the 4 pin firewire cable out of the camera sticks right in front of the start/stop button making it virtually unusable. Has anyone found a supplier for an angled 4 to 6 pin cable? The cable would have to be angled up.....the readily available left and right angeld cables won't do the job.

Maybe one of these will do?

Angled FW cables from FireWire Depot:

Still looking for Cable for FS-3 / 4 to Canon XL1

Anyone found a vendor for a dv cable for the Canon for the xl1 to connect to the FS3 or FS4 that is angled correctly so you can use the record button on the side instead of the one on top????
