The standard "OMGWTF Tim" that almost everyone on here uses. I'm not man enough to try any of the others yet. Quick question: Can I remove this guy without too much hassle?

If I can remove it, I can relocate my batteries and knock about 7-8mm off my overall thickness. I'm almost done with the modeling, one more test print and fitting ought to do it. If the removal or relocation of that little guy is even a tad difficult, I don't want to go through the trouble of reworking my model as well.

That's the 1.8V regulator. You cannot remove it, unless you replace it with something else or relocate it (don't forget about R1 and R2).

If you have room in your case for another PTH regulator, you can set it to 1.8v, wire it up to the 1.8v line, and use that instead of the LDO. It'll give you a TINY bit better battery life too :D
