1.  I haven't forgotten about the poker hands, I'm thinking about it.  But I
can't see you would do it in COA.  My idea in any case was that one would
quantity directly over the hands themselves.  I.e. variables, instead of
"ranging over natural numbers only" as you have below.  so you would write

    for some H,  H = A & K & Q & J & 10

using a special symbol "&".  I don't see how you would get the equivalent of
"&" in COA.
