Yes. I don't believe it can get big enough to be dangerous. First, it lacks
a mechanism to defend against rogue agents. Second, from my limited
understanding of its architecture, modules communicate by writing to shared
atom tables (rather than natural language), which precludes a hybrid
carbon-silicon architecture.
