	Well, I read the words (even though they warn me emphatically 
that they're for FC5 only); and what's more, I followed the links, and 
tried to read those -- despite the fact that the link to FAQs for other 
releases only takes me round Robin Hood's barn. What I keep saying is 
that I couldn't follow them.

	It's not that those are bad explanations; it's that the 
prerequisites for being able to understand them are way, way beyond me. 

	Here's another way to put it. Try picking up Lauri Hakulinen's 
history of Finnish grammar and reading it. I have, twice, both in the 
original Finnish, and in the German translation, on which LH himself 
collaborated, with additions and updates. Of course, I was already a 
practicing historian of tongues, with nearly twenty year's experience, 
before I started. You are to linux what I was to Hakulinen; I'm not.

	All of that I did, the first time you spelled it out, for which 
thanks! And reported here that I had done it. I'm not *trying* to 
frustrate you, blast it all. I'm just nowhere near your class, nor likely 
to live long enough to get near.
