I hope you're right, but there is still a lot of effort required to get
from where we are to where I think we should be, and looking at the
"progress" over the past century and a bit it seems imprudent to declare
victory in advance; just look at how long it's taken to get from DJP's
first peal using a method that, if viewed as having a plain course, has a
false plain course, to being allowed to use such a method without standing
on our heads and whistling backwards.
