That means that it needs clearer marketing, not that the idea is bad.

I'd buy one and park it on the roof at work.  I just asked, and they
probably wouldn't buy one themselves, but would let me use their roof
to host mine (at least while I work there).

Certainly not of _no_ interest; I'm interested.  Might not be enough
interest to make it worth the overhead, of course.

But this discussion does make it clear that you'd need to be careful
how you spin it when plugging it to potential customers, or people will
get confused about what it's for.
