Default Upgrading Bosch 1617PK

Has anyone upgraded their Bosch 1617 router to add the speed control module? I see that I can get the control module (#1607233136) for $27.98 and the new cover with a cutout for the rotary control (#2610941008) for $4.73.

While I realize that this will not upgrade from 2.0 to the current 2.25A (would have to replace the field windings and armature to accomplish this), the addition of the speed control would seem worthwhile, at least to me.

So, just wondering if anyone has tried this and, if so, if there were any 'gotchas' doing it.
