   Interesting idea. I wonder if it's really possible,
though. I went to grade school with identical twin
girls. Over the years they became less identical.
Different builds. different temperaments. noticeably
different faces. Yet identical genes and very similar
childhood environment.
   It makes me think of The Portrait of Dorian Gray.
