That's a different analogy.  Someone using Netscape 4 _can_ get taller.
Let's say you're 3 foot 9, but just by a relatively easy process you
can get some magic growth drug, which is free, but your boss refuses
to sign off on your request for the drug.  The problem is your boss,
it's not the houses you consider buying.

In other words:  bad analogy.
