Which reminds me of a family expression.

My father was part of the 1950s Brain Drain, and left RRE in England to go 
to UBC in Vancouver in 1956.  Another British physicist, Geoff Bates, 
joined the Physics Department at the same time. 

The head of the Physics Department was very proud of the fact that the 
faculty gathered for "tea" each afternoon, and were very  anxious to have 
the two British additions join them.

After tasting the "tea" Geoff said: "Hmm, it is quite good, but it will 
never replace tea."

The expression "It is quite good but it will never replace X" is now 
firmly established in the Gunn family lexicon.
