It was mainly a sales tool so we could started projects to build a
reference system. Since building a reference system requires all the
nice things you talk about, and that costs money, I proposed that
building a demo system would go far towards getting us the
credibility that we would need to get funding. Plus the demo (not a
pilot) was for the purpose of advancing public debate on the topic.
Judging by the press we've gotten, our demo has been successful so
far.

Best regards,
Arthur
