Thanks. I know your comments weren't aimed at me, and I know all of your comments were supremely accurate - all in all, you're pretty credible. I also think it's a good idea to let people know there are long-term logistics and maintenance issues.

I don't disagree with your disadvantages. If you hadn't been so good at making your point I wouldn't have bothered to rebut it.
