here is a very related thought Alastair...

can we take a look again at the magnificent FOM2, that you so  
wonderfully labored over...and find a way to make the images a little  
bigger, and the price a little smaller...

perhaps based on that , move on to the new project, so that both will  
ultimately appeal to an even wider audience ?

They would both be noble projects, and should be priced right,  
available to the world at large...including all my friends, children,  
and grandchildren.
