that would clearly work, but would be very heavy. I'm definitely
not in the field, though. and to me, a 100x multiplier makes the
whole idea very dubious - why not just use fast hardware and run
every task 3 times and vote for the results? obviously, there are
some places where software/temporal redundancy can't be used.
