[NewCandle] Constrained hydrolysis

Likely I would try putting a pair of electrodes
into the sealed cell and spark them periodically.
But most chemists would recommend a recombiner with
catalyst. A flame would only work where there is
substantial gas flow. That said, the flame arrestors
I've seen used by Brown and others were porous ceramic.
This is a commercial product that's easy to get.

We should consider, or try to design, a low-tech flame arrestor so that
gas coming off of any low output cell can be burned on the spot. That
way it might be possible to get a "ballpark" thermodynamic balance.
I assume that a coleman wick is way too porous for H2 and maybe not
catalytic. They use a water bubbler arrangement for some JC experiments,
which is probably the way to go if you add some nickel mesh to
catalytically ignite, as at low volume -- you could lose a flame from
time to time. Any other suggestions?
