Pete, we stand behind those ideas, no doubt. But is there the will within to do so, because they can, or will it be a cost versus effort situation? I'm for the "show 'em what we can do" philosophy, like I perceive you to be as well. But, since the General is on the move with cafe and restructuring on the event horizon, can the Team again be given the opportunity, resources, and decision making to carry on and bring in the Z/28 that we have been clamoring for? It's there for the taking. We believe it can be done. In the end, it's up to the powers to be.
