USB B versus USB miniB Answered

I was wondering about some boards that use the USB B type of connectors.  Is it possible for me to use them with a USB miniB type of connector if I rework the board to the miniB pinout, or is there something about the USB B connector that makes it better for these boards?  One of the boards in question happens to be the Arduino Duemilanove.  Does anyone know if the miniB would retain the same functionality as the USB B type connector?

You can get an adapter to change one to the other, no need to desolder anything.  Functionally, they're the same.

Yes. The only difference between the two  is the size and shape of the connectors.
