	Nice post. If it is an ad it is also much more, and as
strongly as I support the ban on ads I think this is fine. I have
a couple of small questions to see if I am getting this right--
of course finally I should read the book.

>(3) sets have Boolean unions
>(4) sets have unions in the usual sense
>	[4 is an infinitary version of 3] 

	Does this mean 4 does not imply 3? Is that due to a lack
of unordered pair sets, or something more subtle about sets of 

>(5) the equality relation and the projection relations of the pair exist

	Can we define a "function from a set x to a set y" in
the usual set theoretic way (a single-valued relation between 
elements of x and those of y, defined for each element of x), and
conclude (from existence of the equality relation) that every
set x has a one-to-one function to V?
