Argh.  What I'm saying is that this is being worked on.  And I know  
from the research perspective in a previous life that it can be made  
work.  The fact that startups are working on commercializing wasn't  
supposed to suggest viability (it never does), but that products are  
on the way to market.  I have my confirmation of viability of the  
concept from a different background altogether and I don't subscribe  
to startup=viability for anything.
