After pondering the question Chuck posed and reading some of the responses
to date, I'd like to build on his question with a trio of friendly
rejoinders. One, what difference does it make? Two, if we find that one
type is better disposed toward ST, what do we do with everyone else?
Three, isn't the question antithetical to ST in the first place?
