Ken: thank you for your opinion, even if I don't agree with it.

Having different opinions on things are good, it requires me to 
formalize my thinking and defending it. Being a lazy person, I don't 
often formalize, and assume my belly-feeling is sort-a-OK. Now, I 
checked my belly-feeling with my brain and it seems like they feel OK 
with each other. But next time, my belly might have been wrong, and you 
right :-)
