Deployment of da Bags

	Interesting post on the 6 bag Audi.  Don't know the car, but 
deployment is not always based "purely" on sensor contact.  Some hard 
penetrating side collision (immediately fore of the A-pillar "cowl" area) 
will cause BOTH front bags on various cars to deploy.  Now, before the 
flames are fanned, you can argue argue that the "sensor" mechanism caused 
deployment.  But, the point is, bags blow in funny ways.  Chances are you 
would not have all 6 at once, I agree.
