I'm talking about the RECIPIENT OF THE CODE. If you don't RECEIVE THE
CODE, you are not the "recipient" I was speaking of. Geez, that's
really it. I don't know how many ways I can say it, but maybe if
you'd identify other candidate understandings of "recipient" such that
they are the "recipient of the code" and yet there are multiple
possible understandings, that would help.
