Depends on what those elements are, maybe it's relatively easy for some, but probably a bunch of those are going to be fairly difficult to do, and so you're putting a lot of extra work onto folks, so that's gonna be one thing that's gonna start to push against you a little bit, but the other thing is, you start to say, 42 line items for unit pricing, that starts meaning, not everything fits into the unit pricing sort of concept. Like, if you say, well, "let's give us a unit pricing, "you know, we've got one layer of drywall "on most of the partition walls, "but give us a unit price in case we want "to put two layers of drywall." So you've got that, sort of, as one of your general unit price things, gonna give you some options. Well, a typical contractor's gonna look at that, and say, "wait a minute, that's a one-hour wall, "and that's a two-hour wall, "why would you get a unit price on a difference "between a one-hour wall and a two-hour wall?" Like, that means you don't know whether it should be a one-hour wall or a two-hour wall.
