I wasn't really seeking to change FS or their behavior so much as I was
trying to help out the individual who may feel that they ended up
wasting their money paying for  an SMA, which only bought them an
upgrade which they thought was useless.  If it causes FS to put out a
better cheaper product, all the better.
