I wonder if this is the best time and/or place for this discussion. Any
attempt to do this question justice would require a very meticulous
examination of the second edition by some qualified TC scholar who was also
familiar with the first edition.

In other words, some TC scholar is going to need to put in some significant
hours on this before we will get anything other than a lot of hot air
expressed on the topic.

Since we had more than enough hot air vented on the first edition (see TC
list archives) I really wonder if we need to do a second round on this so
