It is true that one will get that way much more that can be naively
expected.  OTOH when I did that on some occasions THE WORLD still
turned out to be smaller than "THE WORLD plus the rest".  That may

of that much less than he thinks he would.

(that did happen to me in the past when I had to do some
"unconventional upgrades") but it is not likely in the situation
under discussion.
