I suspect the final number (fingers crossed that we get to a final number) is going to be closer to $5m.
You're leaving out both the change in the economy (and therefore cap projections) and, more importantly, the RFA vs. UFA factor. I think we can get it done for $4MM per or less (depending on number of years).
