Plus several.

Obviously the hums were not aimed at deciding any engineering questions
in need of great precision. They were aimed at getting a sense of the room
on some general principles. As with the two previous occasions I mentioned,
if we want to write them up, there needs to be a draft and a consensus-forming
process. That would be a fine background activity. Meanwhile, I hope progress
on doing the actual work continues in the foreground.
