that working before I retire.
Hm, well, there are functional commercial implementations that run 128
colours of 10 Gb each over a single fibre already, aren't there? That's
already terabit+. And 100GE is already at least a draft standard, which
gets into the 10Tib range. Bandwidth is not quite cheap yet, but it's
