No, I think its a combination of computing advantages of mass driver
launches from the equator perhaps permutated by trying to figure out
the proper distance of the Dyson Net from the sun [how to balance
the stattites]. I threw my pitiful 2 cents in by either suggesting
I wanted to convert my planetary disassembly code (which is in C)
into some kind of net-enabled app or proposing we needed a way
to convert Spike's spreadsheets into Java.

*Your* wanting to determine the optimal orbital intersections was
just the frosting on the cake.

We can cast this thread in bronze and use it as an example of why
even Eli's AI may be unable to save us "Sandbox Politics".
