Okay, we have WAY too many threads on this - let's consolidate.
Please discuss the ramifications, possibilities, etc. here.
If you have something REALLY REALLY NEW on this, or something that really doesn't fit in this thread, then start a new one, but please, try your best to make it fit here so that we can have one active thread at a time with a wide-ranging discussion about this.
But please don't start a new thread every time any little speck of news breaks on this, or every time you have a thought. Makes it way easier for everyone to navigate these threads.
