It seems to me that you Hitoshi, are at the root of our tree.
Stephen is attacking it brute force and climbing every branch
while maintaining a good center of gravity near the trunk.
Ben is also clinging to the trunk but straying onto the branches,
but not as much as Stephen. Matti has taken a side, and seems
to have strayed onto one particular branch from which he cannot
see the trunk of the tree but which is none the less a fruitful
[MP] I would say that side has chosen me(;-). I believe that
for me the most useful thing to do is to formulate this particular
approach as precisely as I can do it. At worst, the demonstration
that this branch is not a fruitful saves others from doing it.
I hope I'm climbing the trunk and and seeing where you all are
correctly, though I apologize for any hurt feelings if you disagree
with this perspective.
It's clear none of you are seeing any value in my points so I
won't bother you with them further.
[MP] On my side the problem is that I have no intuition in computer
science and cannot represent interesting comments. I however read your
postings and try to learn.
