Davis, let me be among those who thank you for your work on this.  Here's
hoping this is another stage in the perpetuation of our beloved Newts.

Assuming this works, have you any idea what kind of price point we're
looking at for this mode of production?  I ask because I doubt that I'm the
only one thinking this could be a solution to the problem of replacing the
door (or whatever we should call it) on the MP2100, to protect the screen.
But affordability is going to play a rôle here.
