I've done that too; written something and not noticed newer posts.  But I
didn't think of that when I responded.

No offence taken, Jon.    It's a consequence of my mind's sometimes-strange
way of operating that I suddenly imagined an army of lawyers trying to
pretend to judges around the world that they weren't talking nonsense by
trying to enforce trademark laws against everybody in the world with "stein"
in their name -- and especially against the salamanders.  The surrealism of
it pluse the image of such discomfiture for trademark attorneys gave me a
good several seconds of unbridled amusement.  :-P
