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

    James Kass had written:

    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 hope, other implementations (including that BableMap) will follow suit.

    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.
