Indeed. That's an excursion I'd rather not take.

But to put the case FOR the little devils, here's a transcript of a French
guy and two Japanese chaps who approve of breeder technology:

M. Jean Claude Guais, Vice President of Strategic Development of COGEMA,
Inc., sez in opening:

< I would like to make the case for recycling plutonium--that is no
surprise coming from me. I will discuss the value of reprocessing,
conditioning and recycling--or "RCR" as we term it--on a strategic,
economic, and environmental basis. Then I will spend a little time on
proliferation resistance as a major specific criteria, on plutonium
tracking--as it is the main topic of this conference today--and finally
some conclusion and personal remarks. >
