Cute that you got the field gang to support this posting, Noah, but would the honoree approve?

Obviously not published anywhere, and no readily available description; not even a nom. prov!

Maybe someday this will be a published name, and that would be great, but I don’t believe that it is one now. When I see Else vote “I’d Call it That” here, then I’ll believe it.

You are jumping the gun. I’d wager that Else would think the same thing.

Funny, you used to complain about this very thing to me.
