Was it Bulgakov that said: "Texts do not burn"?
Did he ever try it? Some texts will even burn quicker than others and will give a wonderful glow and warmth :P(I recommend Ram Oren's latest book,it kept my feet warm and toasty for hours).

Bulgakov did try it, actually - and then rewrote some of the burnt text.
But more to the point - have you read the article?
Re:have you read the article?
Of course I did and I too would have been jumping up and down if it wasn't for the lack of space in this small room.

בקושי הספקתי לקרוא את מה שכבר יש, ועכשיו הם הולכים לגלות עוד? נבלות.

I'm not even a classicist and I'm pretty psyched :)
i'm so excited, i actually feel a little dirty.
As I noted, one of my first reactions (guilty), after the initial shock and rush of pleasure, was to dash off a note to my roommate and tell him "still think Classics is a moribund field?" To his credit, he's been very patient with my "I told you so," and even thinks there might be something to all this, after all.
