A couple of years ago I had a Solidscape jewelry model destroyed --
the entire package crushed -- by Fedex, and although I had not bought
extra insurance they did pay the $100 default value without arguing.
So there's a data point...if Fedex is like most companies, it probably
depends a lot on who picks up the phone.
