    Ah, well let it be said that I never demanded they all have different names. Never said that. Never meant to imply it. Have no idea how that got communicated to you.

    I only said no two of them are ever identical.

    Names are just that- woids.

    A tree is a tree is a tree. But tree1 is not tree2. I would have thought that to be elementary semantics.

    You can use the same name for different things, of course. I would have thought that obvious, as well.

    There are two Cadillac Eldorados. Nice cars, if you like that type of car. Same year, same color, same options. One of them misfires at cylinder 5. Which one? They have to behave to find out.
