Since when are hams reasonable?  I'd be really leery of hooking a guy to the
eave (or peak) of my house if for no other reason than roofs and attachment
methods are designed for dead load in the downwards direction, some lateral
windload and not much uplift.  Don't think I'd want an aditional few kips of
+ vertical and lateral load applied to a bunch of 16D nails.....
