But if the prize of driving were magnitudes lower (say $.01) than candy 
and pizza and you could only pickup one thing at a time, you could 
compare the prize of candy and pizza by getting 100 of each:

pizza: 100 * (4 + 0.01) = 401
candy: 100 * (2 + 0.01) = 201

Still the picture is a little screwed by the cost of driving, but if 
that's low (and my tests suggest the shreds are) you're pretty close.

Still I'm gonna work with your idea! Stupid me doesn't know of a way to 
pass arguments to a chuck file from the commandline. I'd rather not have 
the 100 as in "create 100 SinOsc's" hardcoded in the files.
