It's not that we think that it is a bad idea. We just don't think it will
work. The problem hasn't been solved yet, and it would be a shame to think
it has and therefore to quit working on it.
I personally feel that there is no such thing as permanence: one can't just
put it away and expect it to be there in the future, not paper, not CD-ROM,
not even clay.
