	I fully agree with this.

A dispel magic is only level 3.  It cannot get rid of a permanency spell!!!
It can only negate the effect for a few moments.  If
the dispel magic was that powerful and could get rid of a permanency that
easily, we would have evil mages and priests going all out to cast dispel
on Holy Avengers and other permanent magical items.

To really destroy a glasssteel ship, you would be better off casting a
disjunction.
