Yes, once it's there, I can change the name to whatever I want.

So, I will rephrase the above as:

    But of course, I do resent having, in many cases, to use two steps

    able to do it in one.

Indeed, nothing like precision! After all I am a mathematician if only a 
half-baked one and washed-out at that. :-)
