Inefficient _and_ ugly. Somebody call the architecture department, it 
look like we've got an international design winner on our hands.  1:1 
backspans never look right, but if its tied down well enough that's all 
that matters.

Kind of reminds me of my filing cabinets when I accidentally leave the 
drawers out.
