The part that worries me is that we have papers on optimizing 
particulate flows of grains - a very nice metaphor, in fact - but not 
nearly so many people eager to implement those improvements.

People are instead eager to implement, er, dark matter.

On the bright side, I think the paper you presented on XML and JSON 
may have some impact on those priorities.
