Re: How easy it is to get an international deal

... interesting side-light on this was in the BBC documentaries on the fundemental scientific units a few years ago which, in the program about the history of weights and the kg, mentioned that when Germany occupied France in WWII they specifically did not make a claim over the bulding holding "Le Grand kg" as they maintained the convention that it was considered to be "International territory" and not part of France.
