My phrase "just how bad the bug would be" was referring to the 
inconsistency.  That discovery is what I meant was your contribution.

By "bug" I just meant that it was already known that there was a problem 
with Goedel's argument as literally stated, and it was also known how to 
repair Goedel's argument to make it correct.
