I can't take credit for that Hakeeb, it was Lior who made the
connection. He does appear to be correct in his observations. Whether
the conclusions he draws have any basis in fact is a different matter,
and one which I suspect we will never know one way or the other. I
have a feeling that if this *is* some grand experiment we will never
see the results published.
