	Interesting idea, but I do have one point.

	If I'm correct, tonnage *is* a measure of volume.  Doesn't it say
somewhere that one ton equals 100 cubic yeards?  And one more thing.
According to the way gravity works, wouldn't the "living section" end up
"on top* of the ship?  I mean, you could put it on the bottom, but the gravity
plane is reversed down there...
