Well, then we're back to something that is indeed difficult to measure,
especially the latter.

Maybe a scale of grokability is the way to go... hell, if I understand it,
it's got to be simple. If only Roy T. Fielding understands it... well, back
to the drawing board. 

We can call it the Lowery-Fielding Scale of Grokability. Oh yeah... I get
first billing.
