Perhaps you're right, but i didn't figure it I would be able to find all the possible, in-use pinouts for each component in the list, so I decided to just cover every possible combo, and let someone delete the ones that don't make sense.

As an aside, I had to cheat a bit in the script I included in the zip file; I couldn't figure out how to generate the permutations so I dug around and found a suitable bit of code in this stackoverflow thread:
