It's a touchy subject. The pump companies are each talking about 
integrating some such capability into their pumps, but the issue of 
"responsibility" is one that must be dealt with.

Imagine the scenario where Joe Blow programs in his "muffin" and 
takes a bolus then goes low while driving to work and has an 
accident. Lots of possibilities for finger pointing.
