Hi George!

      That's an excellent point, and perhaps more
archival inks and papers at less cost will be digital's
final hit!  Realisicly, it seems that those drum scanners
are top quality output.  So the quality and even the
archival issues are nearly there for digital, or at
least face the same issue as analog printing with
the paper stock, mounting, storage, etc.  Committing
digital files to hardcopy solves a lot.  That's why
books didn't die with computers evolving.
