Forget the request. I see it has been abundantly answered in other 
posts I hadn't read at the time I replied.

     I suppose that one point of interest remains: can one possibly 
do better with a coil having no topload and the same Ctot as a coil
with topload?  I'm betting not, mainly due to ionization clamping. So 
now I guess we're at the point when we figure out just what it takes 
to burn air efficiently - i.e. what is the best you can possibly do 
for some given figure of E x BPS?  I suppose even this is passe - one 
can do wondrous things if BPS is a fraction and E is huge!

     Bearing that in mind, what goals do we aim for now? Fixed E and 
the best you can otherwise do etc.?  I am beginning to feel some 
lassitude coming on.
