some of it, but his work itself duplicates Wolfe's hard work.... Of
course, wikifying the book is likely to produce new insights and
discoveries that can be fed back into the new edition of the LEXICON, so
he may be more than repaid for the few unbound copies unsold to
dilletantes who satisfy their curiosity with the wiki instead.
