Actually, I also remember Isaac Kuo making the very good point
that the structure of spacetime for an FTL particle would be so
weird that hardly any of the usual laws of physics would imply,
and that not even atoms could hold together since electromagnetic 
forces wouldn't propagate isotropically.

Travel at the speed of light is possible -- for photons.
