Industrious Spiders

What with all the talk and debate over recent years on "engineering" the perfect human being through DNA advancements, I came up with the following scenario.

Stay with me on this one . . . .   .
Take the gene in a spider, the one that makes it so interminably productive that it begins (almost immediately) to spin a new web once we have removed its most recent creation, and place that particular gene in a human's genetic makeup for the time that they are a teenager.  Voila!!

Ethics aside, send me a lifeline and tell me that this is in the pipeline?
