While I don't doubt the honesty of the FG staff and patrons, it has been 
my experience that the probability of finding someone there with 
authority on a given subject (e.g. "can anybody borrow books from this 
box marked 'perl mongers'?") is roughly int(rand(1.2)).

I think one person will have an easier time of keeping track of them 
than 50.

Do you (David, or anyone else) anticipate a pseudo-monthly spontaneous 
desire to take home a book?

If so, send me a "Subject: reading is not premeditated" e-mail and I'll 
check into it after 5 (unique) votes.

software:  a hypothetical exercise which happens to compile.
