Is this true?  Or he will have hardware "soon"?

I'm not at all worried about him lying, but I'm concerned about being
able to sample across a sufficiently broad range of apps/configurations.
Maybe he can run some PETSc examples and PFLOTRAN, which is a good
start, but may not be running in the appropriately memory-constrained
circumstances of a package with particles like pTatin, for example.  We
care not just about the highs but also about the confusing corners that
users will undoubtedly encounter.
