Huh, interesting.  I talked it over extensively with a friend of mine 
(we've both been studying "Molecular Biology of the Cell" for the last 
year), and it seems pretty plausible.  I read a lot of the forum posts 
as well, I'm pretty convinced these people know what they are doing, and 
what they are doing is fascinating!

I gave them $50, I'm gonna follow their experiment and I'll report back
