Sure, but we don't even know that *that's* happening in a countable manner;
the plural of anecdote is not data. Similarly, saying "LTSP machines
could be machines not counted in smolt stats", while factual, doesn't
actually give you *useful* information as to their prevelance - it doesn't
even *have* those anecdotes.
