I found them fun and interesting, and I wrote an LBase parser partly
so I could play with them.  More to the point, on some matters I find
them the easiest-to-understand source.  I think Peter's comment above
is a bit silly, since I can't imagine anyone who could understand the
axioms who wouldn't assume the bit he suggests is missing.
