Summary

Opatrný and Kurizki [1] have reviewed a number of issues related to the feasibility of quantum computation based on photon exchange interactions. Most of the issues that they considered have already been discussed in more detail in our earlier publications. For example, my brief discussion of collisions in Ref. [2] was followed by a more detailed density matrix analysis [3] that the authors did not mention. I would like to review each of these issues and then summarize my view of the overall prospects for this approach to quantum computing.
