agree but won't speculate what the author had in mind.  I only knew the quote,
so, Google being my friend ;-), I found Mr H's name.  (and like you, never heard
the name before)

too many of those -- too much of that -- already, anyway.  personally would like

very much agree.  my own interest in NX's code is (close to) non-existent[*], I
intend(ed) to keep it for perhaps an occasion like my recent "olympic" scene,
where I'd been looking for decorative plants/planting, but didn't find what I
was looking for.
