Well, I think I'm a bit more optimistic than that.  The feeling I got
is that the bulking problem is by far the perceived largest problem.
I got the feeling people wanted it, but needed their stack providers
to supply it and may or may not be willing to actually ask their stack
provides for it (which I thought was odd).  There are other vendors
interested in implementing it that I'm aware of (but I can't speak for
them so I won't).
