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.
