Patrick, don't blame us for voicing our concerns.  You have an idea, and 
it may be a good one.  Just remember that with any new implementation 
comes some kind of compromise, and in this case it will be processing 
power.  People like John just cannot afford losing some of that at the 
moment.  That is all.

No idea ever came to pass without some resistance.  Live with it, and if 
this idea is important to you, don't go sob in the corner.
