"Calfee says the unusually looking bulge in the down tube was necessary to handle the extreme stresses in that area, particularly when combined with the huge S&S coupler"

Actually, that bike just swallowed a good sized mouse.  Don't believe me?  Think about a snake.  What it would look like if you put an S&S coupler on it.  (THe Calfee crew are excellent engineers but they flunked anatomy.)

is that the one that can break down into a single rider bike? that would be something to have.

what you really need is the tandem where, if you are in the middle of a ride and the stoker starts bitching, you can pull a pin and eject the stoker.

In seriousness, that is a good example of a problem (tandems are a pain to transport) that was solved quite elegantly.
