Depends what your circuit is doing, if you DONT need the isolation and are
switching mains you can 'attach' Vcc direct to LIVE and float the 0v at LIVE -5v
with a zenner. The problem is that the whole circuit and any LED's, switches etc.
will be at mains live, but you do get a nice zero crossing detector too.
