You guys know that I agree with your sentiment 100%. That said, I'd
rather see the systems melted down for scrap (assuming it's a reasonably
efficient and environmentally safe process) than to see them go into a
landfill. I can't imagine how many beautiful systems are rusting away
under 3 million tons of garbage someplace. I don't want to see them
scrapped either, mind you, but given the choice....
