Exactly.  If it goes one way, we have something that's not quite a
perpetual motion machine but comes close.  If we don't get that, we've
shined a light on a significant misunderstanding of quantum mechanics.
It's worth doing either way.

(And then there's the nanostructuring on top of that, which is
apparently more needed than I thought.  Maybe they're thinking there's
a good chance I'll take the skills I use on this project and develop
molecular manufacturing or something. *shrugs*)
