Thanks, Matt--you give a complete and satisfying discussion of this on
January 23 on this list. I forgot about that because it came at the
tail end of a long discussion as to whether C3 could ever be 0, but I
suspect what you said then was rattling around in the back of my head
and only settled in last week.
