I would second to that. However the problem is mathmatically intriguing.
For example there is the hypothesis that NP \cap RP = P. That is
anything polynomially checkable and polynomially solvable using
random bits can also be computed polynomially *without* using
Nevetherless this is only a conjecture. Nobody could disprove it yet,
and a lot of complexity theoretists think, it's true.
