What would be in the interest of preventing an otherwise formidable instance without the means.

Brian pointed out once that the movie Alien used milk crates to make their flooring. Milk crates have a lot of advantages -- light weight and quiet (especially when compared to metal grating).
One interesting idea is that if you don't cut them down they'll be good for lifting your floor up -- so you can underlight or put a camera down there, etc.
The Container Store has square ones (13" x 13") for ten bucks (that's 59 cents per square inch). Advantage Grip has the 19" by 13" for $18 (about 73 cents a square inch).
Filmtools has half-size milk crates for $18.50.
Bread trays are 28 1/2" by 25" and are $19.20 from Melmat. (That's about 27 cents a square inch.)
This picture shows a 2-foot square flooring thing that Home Depot has. It has a tongue-and-groove system for putting them together. They're $5.97 each.

Starbucks leaves dozens of milk crates outside all the time, meaning it would be $0.00 per square inch. If someone were to borrow them that is.
my only question is how you keep the crates from flewing. Their a little flimsy.
Ha! Yes, I didn't include the criminal enterprise method of attaining milk crates.
And the flimsiness of them is possibly what keeps us from stealing them. Then again, if a dozen of them showed up at my door I probably wouldn't question it. Because I'm morally and ethically questionable myself.
Right now the bread trays are looking like the best bet.
