Interesting idea.  Thanks.

How stable is a good laser and/or how hard do I have to work (or how much do 
I have to pay) to get one stable enough for this experiment?  What's the line 
width on a typical laser?  How much does it wander with temperature and 
supply voltage and phase of the moon?

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
