      Now might be a good reminder that the common arrow sealer used today
      has nitrocellulose as its primary ingredient, and sustains
      combustion quite nicely, so if you do get the fire part to work, and
      stay lit after it hits a target, that the arrow will pretty much be
      toast afterwards. As well as the obvious dangers (flying flaming
      objects possibly sending flaming bits anywhere along the trajectory,
      having a burning wad of rags right by your bow hand, shooting an
      arrow that you cannot verify that it isn't about to burn through,
      etc...)
