----- point taken as regards batch processing on the reel. I was thinking of 
the peeling situation and the use of a Copeland-style "grandfather clock" 
approach to baking. Baking in a tunnel oven, so to speak. In that case, 
having the affected part outermost and at a large radius of curvature might 
make sense.

----- is there a verb missing here, and in that case, what is it, and where 
is it to go? It would have an influence on the statement. And we still have 
to imagine scenarios for when anybody would want to access the "original"
