Soda pop bottles hold pressure for years. Vacuum packed
nuts hold vacuum for years. I hope you're not going to
tell me that therefore those containers are hermetic.
Maybe we screwed up the epoxy somehow, although we tried
re-epoxying several times just in case of that.
In any event, an unsealed 10811 was humidity sensitive
according to our tests.
