Recently a new approach to zero-temperature lattice QCD has been gaining ground, where certain physical properties of the theory can be extracted from simulations in a box narrower than one pion Compton wavelength. The basic motivations and conceptual ideas behind this approach are reviewed. Some results, as well as future prospects for attacking the long-standing problem of non-leptonic weak kaon decays from this angle, are also briefly discussed.
