    TANSTAAFL - There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch - you either repair it correctly, fence it off on some unsuspecting fish, or junk it.
    I think this is the plan for most in this thread. Most here are misunderstanding - Many using the bottle are just looking for something cheap to buy time while they figure out what they want to do, whether that be dump or junk. I don't think many are actually expecting a full substitution for a correct repair.
