And Hegel once established that as a matter of logical necessity there 
were exactly nine planets.

Who knows, for some suitably idiosyncratic definition of "planet" that 
might just be true. If you're interested in those idiosyncracies then 
that'd be fine ... but it wouldn't be particularly useful for practical 
astronomy.

Sandro has a practical application, and if that clashes with the 
formalism, then so much the worse for the formalism.

Cheers,
