Nope. And you must have misunderstood me as not only have I've seen  
this spiel about a million times, nearly verbatim, but it is not  
remotely apropos.

If I read your oil example correctly (*again*) it's just a toy  
example. A few rules, then a database. And it's not even a real  
effort or a large effort or a collaborative effort. The rest of your  
public examples are similar, as I recall. So these are no help at all.

Cheers,
Bijan.
