Yes I had discovered my being a "Guinea pig" some time ago,when I tried to address the problem I was met with usually a mixture of confusion, silence,hostility, threats, usually the only way to get any relief was to "play dead" or diagnose the problem, then attempt to reinforce and build apon/create novel defensives,open source projects had given me alot of concepts to pack in,though my  experience isn't ideal, my hope is that eventually through perseverance, advocacy and diplomacy,at some point their will be enough resources, research and skilled workers to properly manage the supply chains in a less burdensome,user friendly way.
