Holy you-know-what...  $41666 apiece?  Does that involve a six digit
salary for the two guys who throw darts at a map to figure out where
they're gonna put 'em?

I figure $10k apiece would be generous, and that a lean-and-mean
organization that was used to cutting costs aggressively could do it
for $4k each or less.
