It will be interesting to see if the BPL threat turns out to be peanuts 
compared to high-density CFL implementation.


Actually this is going to be a non-issue. LED light bulbs are already here (see 
superbrightleds.com). The CFL will soon be a thing of the past. It will be a 
win - win situation, as the LED bulbs are very efficient, last forever (almost) 
and are quiet, both electrically and acoustically.  

disclosure: I am employed by Lowe's HIW in the Electrical Department and have 
been informed that the next reset of the light bulb isle will include many more 
CFLs and some LEDs. So I will benefit both as a Ham and Pecuniary with the 
advent of this new technology.
