Agreed, though I perhaps like Damien am attached to my current
instantiation.  I doubt most of us would have a problem with exiting stage
left provided a clear picture of stage right were presented (and we happened
to agree that that might be the best path forward).

The reason that the Amish still exist is that nobody has ever convinced them
that their existence is pointless.  (A separate moral question is whether
people should be allowed to propagate memes that could be classified as
maintaining a pointless existence?)
