"But we know exactly what we are doing! We promise we won't short the
two lines together, and if it makes you feel better you can limit the
current to 5kA with a big fuse. Please, can we have the power feed,
please??? We won't even pull that much current most of the time. Look, we'd
even be happy to climb up there and run our own feed..."
