mechanical one but consider a scenerio where Linus
Tarvolds visits India
and gets trapped in a lift during a fire. If he uses the cranking lever to
escape safely, then we all stand a good chance of downloading the next

then my apologies for the same.
I should hope he has the sense to not enter a lift during a fire. They
say (and there are signs on and in every elevator) that you should use
the stairs and the the lift in case of fire.
If he's *in* the lift when the fire starts, I shold hope the lift has
enough sense to stop at the nearest floor as soon as the fire alarm goes
Anything more and you might as well start padding the entire world with
Cap'n! Cap'n! the UART's will'nae take the speed!
