I've been looking at the gigapan for a while now and think it's quite cool what it can do.
In talking about the gigapan, however, there's no need to tell blatant lies to make it sound more revolutionary than it already is. For instance:
"As for a starting point, most stitching applications are optimized for images captured by a lens equivalent to about a 38-42mm lens on a full-frame (24x36mm) format (D)SLR. "
Umm... What planet are you on? How many stitching programs are you considering when you say "most"? As far as I'm aware, there are a handful of dedicated stitching programs around and almost all of them can handle stitching together images from lenses of any focal length - up to crazy 180 degree fisheye lenses. (like Hugin - which is free, or PtGui - which is not to name a few).
