"Static"??? Hmmmmm.... (sounds a rebuke, fellows... ;^)

Well, no, certainly one scale cannot be said to be better than another,
simply a matter of preference. This sort of banter is just fun, after all.
Can't remember who started it, though. But after seeing Steve's work I
think we can say that, indeed, 1/72 is the Master Scale...!
