while i agree that redundancy is a good idea, i think getting the
redundancy at the same wavelength would be better. as for getting an
'average' anomalous signal from several wavelengths, some of which will
have a stronger signal, some will have no signal, and possibly others with
an intermediate signal; wouldn't you be better off getting your redundancy
from the wavelength with the strongest signal?
