The ghost of Jack Kusters is now spinning in his grave on
this Halloween night.  Jack was a fairly opinionated
guy and it didn't take much to get him excited.

Jack used to rail against people who asked this naive
question.  There are any number of reasons why this
doesn't make sense.  One major one is that everything
in the tube is thoroughly "cesiated" as Jack put it.
Another is:  how do you determine which parts to replace?
Another is:  is this economically feasible?
