This might be the perfect time for us to blue-sky a bit.  We've fortified our 
ranks with a crop of new team members in the last few years, and old dogs like 
me who'd bought into the original innovative design concept may still have a 
few fizzling neurons to contribute for the cause.

An over-the-top example:  If truly massive sugar engines are proving too 
structurally marginal, one possibility would be to resurrect OTRAG with a 
"bundled" cluster of smaller engine modules.  Of course there's much more to 
the OTRAG concept, and the math might not work with sugar propellant -- again, 
just an illustrative example.

We have a great opportunity to throw open the creative floodgates again as we 
try to make our dream a reality.  Who knows what we might come up with!
