Subject: NEW -- quantum leap

What are y'all out there hearing when people talk about quantum leaps?

Although it would technically have to refer to the smallest imaginable

leap ever imagined by humankind, if space were the issue, I keep hearing

people use it to mean some HUGE difference; but maybe it's not a

quantitative but a qualitative change that's being pointed to. So does

'quantum' now mean 'qualitative'?
