But people keep claiming that some naps are well engineered and have
excess capacity and that the problem is the size of the pipes leading
to them. Adding more pipes is easy enough, leading to the conclusion
that there are other factors at play.

  We can build bigger doors (MTU) but the conveyer belts are stuck
  at 100Mm/sec. We need faster conveyer belts!
