I really don't care what you do, I prefer a Web without all that shit, unless you implement it properly ie. create a suitable standard, and implement it natively if you really have to.
The current spaghetti of dynamic nonsense has lead us to every single bad design decision ever made in software development being made mandatory on every pc.

The first time we stumbled upon pi or any one of the constants, they were also just arbitrary numbers.

But sure, it's way too premature to be making any sort of publications about analysis like this.
If this value starts popping up when doing various unrelated research, it may warrant a closer look.

That's the thing, the features that interest me, are high amounts of code auditing = security, and good multiplatform which also proves a high level of workmanship and modularity of the code.
That's also why I like ext3, which is among the most well audited code in Linux. It actually goes further to protect you from many types of buggy drivers and disk hardware implementations.
ZFS and btrfs style multilayer filesystems only interest me insofar that they offer online dynamic multidrive spanning, but these types of features are still much lower priority for me.
