That doesn't sound like a very wise idea to me, Craig.  Most film cleaners
release a certain amount of chemicals in the air, and I can't believe the
residue will do delicate circuit boards any good (particularly in a
sensitive beast like the Spirit).

Ditto with human lungs.  I say keep the cleaner in a broom closet down the
hall -- preferably one well-ventilated and away from people.  In fact, for
all I know, it may be against OSHA regulations to have a film cleaner in a
place so close to humans.
