You bet!

I'm sure that when everything is done and ready to go, many people in
the world will *die* to know how you did it. It would make a tremendous
business-case (along with numbers, hardwared used, problems and so
forth) for everyone here who is trying to sell a Cocoon based solution
to those businessmen who can only talk corp. logos and overhyped stuff.

I think it would be the nicest way you guys at NASA can pay all of us
back :)
