OTHOH I have gotten things that were scrapped under "assured destruct"
contracts because the definition of "destruct" is "cannot be reconstituted
to work in the original application." under those terms taking the PDP-8/M
out of a machine tool "destroys" the machine tool because without its brain
it won't work anymore. But the PDP-8 still does :-)
