   In my Sun 03 Feb 02 posting on "arbtrary objects"  a couple of omitted
words in the beginning of the last paragraph threatened its
comprehensibility.   Here is the corrected version:

    "On the other hand, significant mathematics has occasionaly come from
mere notational
convenience or grammatical manner-of speaking.   I think of zero.   So
maybe there is some good mathematics in a theory of "arbitrary objects".
Or maybe not."
