consider also that if you're doing this scanning in real time, and
allowing a hypothetical ratio of 1:2 for running time against session
time, and an example work-week of 100 hours (two shifts) and the result
is roughly 8 years to complete the job.  Or 1 year for 8 scanning
systems at the same 100-hour workweek.  Can anyone afford such an
investment in time or facilities?  I honestly don't know.  Please 
correct my premise or my numbers if you feel they're off.
