I don't think I'm any too entrenched here to mention that something has
to be _used_ (that is, apprehended and understood and engaged) first
(regardless of when or how anything is derived) to then be significant....
And, unless I'm horribly mistaken, we're almost over the semantic butte.
(No, that's a sacred burial mound.)
(Well, it sure is purty....)
