I know, my original response [included above] was rather "hardline". There
does appear to be "junk" [remember ones man's junk is anothers treausre]
from viewing the photos, and that could easily be split off. The worst of
all possible scenarios I can envision is someone managing to get the "good

working core plane as art.
