] You guys know that I agree with your sentiment 100%. That said, I'd

] efficient and environmentally safe process) than to see them go into a

] under 3 million tons of garbage someplace. I don't want to see them
] scrapped either, mind you, but given the choice....

Imagine this, fifty years from now, a web of nanotech bots climbing
through and mapping a landfill, finding antique treasures, maybe getting
enough chemical data to reconstruct the things before decay set in...

I'd vote for the landfill over the slag heap any day. Of course, my
basement, when I get one, will be the best option.
