Well, Willliam K, perhaps the next step in our conversation on this subject is for me to go out and see what people are asying about this. So I'll do the story.

Rob, I am certain that it will gather a lot of attention and interest quite a few folks. Safety goes way beyond just being safe, it also seems to require that industrial equipment, at least, be guarded against those who are way beyond just incompetent. 

So it will be very interesting to see what some of the manufacturers, such as Siemens, have to say about thier safety systems.
