My impression is that there are just too many different
FRU's (probably 100,000 ~ 1M) out there for our group to
satisfy everyone even with the ungodly stacks of stuff some
people have. Just DEC alone probably made 50,000
different part types. I also get the impression that there are
a *few* people out there on the list that would collect too
much anyway (IE all of it <g>) if it all became available at
Most people seem to want only one part anyway: the Q/SCSI
adaptor <g2>.

Maybe this is a good metric:
How many components/FRU's etc are you looking to
      take in: give out: sell: buy:
for me it's about
      5 25 0 5

I consider "all of them" or "infinite" a {s|m}ad answer.
