All depends on what you're trying to accomplish and the drivers behind the path you wish (or need or have been mandated) to take.
Having said that, I make no claims with respect to the smartness of others (I find I too often question that in myself to serve as a judge of others). Nice little philosophical exchange...good to break the monotony of real life from time to time. Cheers to all and hope ya find the answers you seek.
