It could be it is well-attested historically and I don't know it.  I'm
not a particular expert in the Hebrew numbering system.  I learned it
within a few years after learning the decimal numbering system, and
have used it on a daily or at least weekly basis since then, but
that's it.  That's why I'd be interested in knowing Ian's source for
his writeup.  (I assume it was Ian given this blog post of his:
http://ln.hixie.ch/?start=1033524738&count=1  He mentions someone
named Simon Montagu there?)
