Actually, this is an excellent idea. In fact, do we even need the
machine phase? Is that merely your gap-bridging strategy?
I count it a profound failure of imagination on my part that this
wasn't obvious to me. ;-)
Still not sure it works in time w/o impractical levels of funding and
commitment, absent supplementary means, but... Yeah, let's do that.
Doesn't invalidate the bet, tho. Ain't gonna happen by 2020; neither
will crossover. IMHO, of course.
This is one of my "would love to be wrong" things...
