        so, we make a seed, and then we kill it -- what was the point of
this exercise again? or do you mean to kill it only _in case_ it goes
haywire? a seed smart enough to eradicate us is also smart enough to gain
our trust; and when it makes its move, we won't know what hit us. the seed
doesn't have a patience problem (one of the big stumbling blocks for all
those bad guys in the movies), we do. in short, if the seed wants our
asses, the seed has our asses.
