LSAT moving to computer test?

What do you think the odds are that the LSAT will be moving from a paper-based test to the computer?

How long do you think if ever will it take for the LSAT to be given on a computer like the MCAT?

My understanding is that 2004 was the goal. Now it's not being seriously considered for any time in the next five years.

Do you think it will change the dynamic of the test? 

How will they be so anal-retentive about the rules of the exam if everyone is on a computer?

There are several good papers on this topic on lsacnet.org
