[at-l] Piezo Igniters

This would probably work, and you can get the ignitors from a hardware store
(or a smaller version from Edmunds Scientific) - *but* - they take a lot of
force to generate the spark.  Mounting one to a typical homemade stove would
eventually beat it to pieces.  An ignitor would probably also be heavy
compared to the weight of the stove.

Just my thoughts,
