Sorry, no -- I didn't mean to suggest that at all.  Based on what you
and others have said I fully believe you are correct that this is a
common assumption.  I just wanted to understand it better -- just what

I don't know Jerry -- your business case looks pretty pursuasive to
me.  You could be a good marketeer (no offense) ;-)
