I know, which is why I'm so interested in taking an off-the-shelf 
scalability implementation and certainly not try to invent something new.

As I mentioned in my first mail, would anyone on the team be interested 
in adding FGS when my company would support it financially?

The value of a program is proportional to the weight of its output.
