Idea for trans-expression/vol pedal compatability (was Re: volume pedal help)

 have an idea

a simple mod (resistors and a switch?) that could be done to a pedal that 
would allow you to switch between modes/resistances

(I have a Zoom FP01 and would like to use it with Vortex and Echoplex but 
it has the short-range problem..)

or an adapter that is male at one end and female at the other (or 
female-female etc..) and has a switch that lets you select different 
impedances and/or resistances or somethings so that different 
expression/volume pedals can be used interchangeably with different
