Yes. Yes it is, isn't it?

Alioth is supposed to solve the first of these. Nobody has yet come up with
a solution for the second. Both affect all NM folks equally. You still
haven't given any argument that actually contradicts his assertion.

(As stated elsewhere, I believe it *is* a hinderance, which means that it
might, in fact, make sense to fast-track some folks. I believe a better
answer by far would be making it un-necessary to 'fast' track anyone).
