iPod Data/Power from different cables

Is there a way to draw data from one cable and power from another on an iPod/iPhone?

AFAIK, it's possible, but I'm not aware of any readily available cable or adapter that will do the job. The line-out on the iPod has separate pins for power and data, as I recall, so you might be able to find someone to create a line-out dock adapter that has two cables running out of it, one for power, the other for data. But it's a custom job and would probably cost some $.

Do you have an unpowered/low power USB port on your computer or hub that you want to use for data and still have the option of charging the iPod via a wall outlet?
