i've seen poorly trained, inexperienced electricians hit EPOs for
totally bogus reasons. putting a big red EPO button in front of them is
like dangling a shiney object in front of some people i know.
once at GE R&D, we had an electrician announce that "the room was running
on emergency power", so he had to turn the emergency power off.
