OK. So, what if Linux came with this requirement, and the shell, and the 
C library, and a spreadsheet, etc., so that there were a tremendous 
number of citations required? This would create a hardship. I suppose 
you'd say that your tool is closer to the actual research than Linux or 
the spreadsheet. But if that's the case, won't papers mention and cite 
it anyway?
