I would agree, after watching the folks in my area doing the Cold Atom 
Lab (which makes Rb Bose Einstein Condensates in a "benchtop" unit) here 
at JPL. It's similar in many ways to building a Rb reference.. lasers, 
Rb cells, etc.; countless things to do, to figure out, and none of them 
are easy.
