Just to note, I never use "checkability" to mean "algorithmically
determinable" -- if I say something is "not checkable" I mean that
there is no sure way for a well-intentioned human being to determine
with authority if she has or hasn't met the checkpoint.  (Al may know
and understand this distinction, but I'm just wanting to be
explicit.)
