    Fair enough, Michael. But the burden of going forward with the evidence
    is still yours. (I'll do what I can.)

    Quite so, and I retract all remarks implying that.

    Yes, except these letters are Latin letters (indeed, letters used to
    write the Latin language). You if anyone should be against unifying them
    with Greek letters, particularly since they were applied for purposes
    very different from those of sigma or heta.
