this wacky Jabber rumor

This is still only in the rumor stage, but further substantiation of
the "Jabber" rumor came in today, anonymously, with this report:

> Rank has been considering using a larger CRT for a while, but they

> Also, they are creating a color corrector to go with it.  The color

I do not offer the above as anything but speculation.  Please don't
assume that it is fact, and don't attribute it to me.  It is offered
here only to spark our usual spirited discussion.
