In all seriousness, I hope everyone involved will be very, very careful -
this could provide unpleasant new ways for diseases to cross species.
Particularly while the organ is 'gestating' within the pig.

What would it actually take to grow an entire organ in vitro, rather than
having the life-support system of a complete organism maintain it?
