it ain't like that, though.  you have to choose one of the things i said,
because one of them is what's going to happen.  no third thing can happen,
it will be exactly one of those two things.

as i told someone else recently, i want a third choice.  i'd like universal
BCP38.  world peace.  debugging for human nature.  doesn't matter though;
we'll get the first choice i offered, or the second one.
