Hi TGMC, I don't think you are being a wise guy, but I think you are preaching to the choir.
I've built several wood stoves, including ones that frankly were pretty high tech for their day. With huge thermal ceramic mass in the center of the home, with built in air duct work to transport that stored heat. one with a soapstone top and front verneer.
I'm on my third water-heated concrete floor shop, my current one a 40x60 with 16' ceilings. It now is being heated like my house from a remote SS wood/coal boiler of my design.
I personally think the europeans are way ahead of us in most heating designs. When I was spending three days every week in Stuttgart for several years, I saw a lot of radiant low temp walls, floors and ceilings. The radiant panels are made to last 50+ years. Very heavy duty. Homes and buildings are built to last centuries over there.
I'm not as impressed with Tamm and some of the other high tech wood burners., the reason is that they require very dry wood. If you toss in a slightly green piece of wood, the whole system stops working and clogs up with creosote, I've helped a few frustrated owners troubleshoot high tech wood burners.
I've fallen in love with coal burners for the consistant heat delivery.
