You raise some interesting points here, Art.  Clearly 
there are hybrid solutions that get around the design 
compromise that I cited.

But curiously, our man from Polaroid is in ICE-denial, 
saying that his (perceived) clientele doesn't value ICE.

Nor did I, until I had a chance to work with it.

As I recall, David was in similar denial when some  
of us informed him (way, way back) that we'd really 
like a TWAIN driver for our Polaroid scanners.
