[at-l] Piezo Igniters

The ignitor works on the principle of pressure on some crystals
generating electricity.  You squeeze the button and a spark is produced.
Some lighters have these, I think all gas grills have them, and as
Kahley says, so do some commercial stoves now.  The advantage is that
you don't have a flint that will wear out, and no fuel is spent.  I
suppose it is just a gadget, but I guess I am a gadget geak at heart.
