Well, I just tried, and it worked fine.  My Amiga's Boing! mouse (a
third party mouse that's essentially a Mouse Systems bus mouse converted
to have an Amiga-style DB-9 connector) pad works with my 3/60's
RJ45-connected (this is the oldest type, I think) mouse, and the Sun pad
works fine with the Boing!.  The Boing! pad is smaller and the lines
look twice as close together as the big Sun pad.
