Basically you have restated what I stated in my post. IECF has possibilities, it is just that the current detailed published units aren't making it. The beauty is they are cheap and quick to test.
I think that some form of collisional, collapsing or infalling fusion device will succeed, but can't imagine the details. This limitation is both mine, mentally and the current batch of well know canidates, physically.
