Hi Tinu,

>From my reading of Srinivas' email, it looks like he meant it as a simple word 
of caution and as a way of sharing (with the group) a piece of information that 
he came across recently. Knowing your efforts, he wouldn't have meant anything 
else, I suppose. So, let's all AGF on this. :)

 "That language is an instrument of human reason, and not merely a medium for 
the expression of thought, is a truth generally admitted."
- George Boole, quoted in Iverson's Turing Award Lecture
