	Umm..., what's the point?  If you keep all of the flow characteristics
the same, and you keep the portals at the same point and their actions the
same, and everything else the same; why bother?  All you've really done is
make the crystal shell into a giant holographic projector of infinity.

	Besides, with the advent of Planescape it is no longer possible
(according to TSR canon, at least) to have infinite Prime Material Planes.
This is because, now, a plane emobodies a single things (either alignment or
state of being).  The Prime only exists as a place to have bunches of random
combinations of things.  If you decide to make multiple Primes, then by rights
they should only be demi-planes drifting around the Ethereal.

	And going back to crystal spheres, there is no set size limit.  Hence,
no need to "warp" a reality/game setting into SpellJammer.  Everything can
fit into a crystal sphere.  Technically, our whole reality could be inside
one really huge crystal sphere.  After all, scientists do believe that there
is an edge to the universe - sounds like a crystal shell to me.
