Although the idea of cell to cell communication is interesting I do not believe
it is relevant to the discussion relating to E. coli competence as described in
the paper in question.  If competence is due to cell to cell communication how 
can the drop in competence that is seen when cell densities increase from 0.94 
to 1.0 be explained?
