This isn't supposed to be a special thing.  Don't multiply entities
unnecessarily; if we can do things without inventing new fundamental
concepts, we should.  I'm especially against inventing things that
"arent' exactly combiantors" - getting *close* but to *exact* to an
existing concept is a recipe for confusion.
