That's basically what we're doing. And consistently, the results come up as "Well, we can't entirely rule out it's measurement error, but we're not quite sure it works either."

We also dont know why it works if it does,so we cant make a better one until we understand more. The person that stumbles upon the magic improvement(if there is one) will be richer than the guy who stumbled upon vulcanization of rubber.Knowing how fate generally rhymes,the supposed leap-forward will be something stupid,like filling the cavity with neon,or making the cavity a lopsided loop rather than a cone.
