These remind me of another very preliminary draft I never announced but 
should have: 

               "Capability Myths Demolished" 

As the red text at the top explains, I already know this essay is broken in 
some ways.  But without more feedback I'm not getting around to fixing it, so 
fire away.  Even in its current flawed state, I think many of you will still 
find it quite interesting -- perhaps even outrageous. hal tyler
