Given (1) the size of the _Whorl_, and (2) the fact that people don't
seem to moonwalk on the airship, I'd say this won't work. OTOH, the
godlings (at least, the one we see) isn't even as big as, say, an
apatosaur of the larger varieties, so I don't see any inherent problem
with them. The impression I get about the seadwellers in NEW is that
they are more like the size of young mountains.
