And the answer was basically, Rs. shouldn't have been encoded,
and that if they encoded Re., then they would need to encode DM

-- David Starner - email@example.com Einstein once said that it would be hard to teach in a co-ed college since guys were only looking on girls and not listening to the teacher. He was objected that they would be listening to _him_ very attentively, forgetting about any girls. But such guys won't be worth teaching, replied the great man.
