I looked closer in the manuals after you mentioned this. The pins have more than a few variations - so I guess my breakout boards will be limited to the Pro 2.4 versions I have.

Look at the photo on the product page, and imagine another 1/4" or so of XBee coming off the bottom. You could, I suppose, put it together with those parts bent over far enough to make it work. I haven't tried that. The regular XBee (not Pro) fits fine on these boards (as you can see in the photo). I'm using the same voltage regulator from that board, but mounted externally, to power an XBee Pro (215 mA transmit) with no problems.
If you're still looking for a higher power Xbee board, I saw this one at adafruit recommended - apparently 250mA
