I ooked through the thread and seem to miss the idea that it is possible to accept slower take-off in order to increase the payload weight.

This might be applied for deivery of propellant. ...

If we don't have Lunar oxygen, send up water. If we do, send up Hydrocarbons.

For launching things like water, we can go with high thrust solid rockets, then pick up the cargo with an orbital tug. Possibly launch the solid rockets magnetically.
