Could be,  I suppose.  I think this is a matter of personal preference.  I
prefer that SJ _not_ be that much more technically or magically advanced

us.  What difference does it make by what pains each seeks the truth?  We
can not attain to so great a secret by one road..."

Victory from the Senate House" (392 AD)
