    But if images are involved, it's perfectly reasonable to insist that 
    the original RAW images should be available, as well as any 
    derivatives thereof. That allows those listmembers who disagree with 
    the interpretation, or who want to go more deeply into the details, 
    to replicate the analysis and provide their own version.

    Whereupon He created Woman.
