Sorry to butt in, but I was just curious why one would do this. Around
here (L.A.) the daylight spiral bulbs cost about $7 for a 22W (around
1200 lumens) -- roughly 5.8 cents per 10 lumens. You can get daylight
power compact fluorescent bulbs for about $11 with 4600 lumens for about
$11 -- about 2.3 cents per 10 lumens.
