So, let me get this straight. They want a:
  o) literary genius
  o) savante in 1001 programming languages, protocols,
     operating systems and applications, and
  o) someone with tertiary qualifications (as if the other
     thousand requirements weren't enough)

What are they going to pay this person, monopoly money??
