The authors thank Ira Wasserman for privileged early access to an illuminating preprint (I.M. Wasserman 2009, private communication), Sterl Phinney for directing us to the work of Kosowsky and collaborators, Scott Hughes for a valuable discussion on multipole expansions, and the anonymous referee for spotting an error in our original calculation of the decoherence time and for generally improving the manuscript. We also acknowledge the substantial computing resources and support provided by the Victorian Partnership for Advanced Computing and the Damiana Cluster at the Albert-Einstein-Institut, which made the simulations in this paper possible.
