yes, but jeff, let's keep this in mind when we start using openbios for
physics problems. Until then, though, OpenBios looks like an engineering
problem, with breadboards and testbeds. Which can be misconstrued as "hack
and go" if you haven't been at this kind of thing for very long :-)

p.s. Not that I want to interfere with anyone's right to slam everyone on
