Thanks!  That's an excellent article.  FWIW, I do understand the value
of the CS thing; I just wish they hadn't overloaded an existing term.

Indeed, there's something hugely ironic here.  The goal is to overcome
the "Tower of Babel problem", and the name for that goal was borrowed
from another discipline in a vague metaphor.  Whoops. :)
