:You've done the same thing in this email that you did in your earlier
:comparison. You've found a trivial subset of the problem and then make
:the generalization that solving that subset shows that the solution to
:the problem is trivial.

    You know as well as I do that embedded projects are ALWAYS a trivial
    subset of something.  Until you get to the level of sophistication of
    an iPhone.  You only need to solve the subset of the problem that
    the embedded project covers.

    Most general problem sets become trivialized when used in degenerate
    environments.  This is not a description of a trivialized solution to the
    problem set being generalized up, it is a description of the generalized
    solution to the problem set being applied to a degenerate application
    which trivializes many aspects of the general solution.

    My interest is in large scale systems, OF COURSE I'm approaching the
    problem from the point of view of large scale systems and not small
    scale systems.  Don't be silly.
