IMHO even worse: You will need not only enough people to have it tested (means
more to try it out), but enough people to have it _analyzed_ independently
(this one will constrain the set of possible persons a lot) _and_ made the
results public (I fear this one is also a working limit on that set).
Not that I want to correct you in any way, but I think that's the essence of
what you wanted to express - only to make things clear.
