Exactly, started thinking about this issue after
I heard a comment about SOL and cables in a webinar.
Never intended to be anything more* than a
"flying cars, underwater cities, home reactors,
category" type discussion.

*sometimes the best thing that comes out of such
musings is someone who really studied the issue
provides a well reasoned explanation of the problem
or lack there of, and I get enlightened.
