I just wanted to second Dietmar here in praising your work.  What
matters about research is not that research always comes up with
something great.  What matters is that research will explore an avenue
and at the end we will be able to tell if this new idea was good or not.

And you will always have research by-products.  So as Paolo said, this
is a good topic to research, and it has great work behind it (we are all
very surprised).
