I hope to get to those numbers one day, but it will be a bit scarey and potentially dangerous at those levels, especially those flux levels, but as you say, it is sort of a goal that must be hit if much useful stuff is to be done with the output.

I hope your base comes soon. Waiting is always exasperating. However, it could be a time to go over the design many more times and improve it before you carve the thing in stone. (or metal as the case may be.)
