it is always sad, if a joke has to be explained. But so be it.

Alluding to the misspelled "BRAKCED" (or some such) recently mentioned,
in this thread, Curtis Clark had made the following joke:
> The same technique works for all but one of the brackets. :-)
I have continued that joke:

I. e. including the misspelled one, as that programm had been reported,
just before, to search the aliases along with the names proper.
I have continued:

I have mentioned BableMap because, from the preceding discussion, I was
under the impression that it only covers the names proper. However, I had
not tested it, which I probably should have -- but then I have already spent
far too much time in this thread.

All the better. Andrew, no harm was meant; please forgive my sloppiness.
