In response to Dave Kathman's message, could I make it perfectly clear
that I was not endorsing the Wraight / Stern book, just responding to a
request for information about sources for the theory in question.  I did
consider adding a health warning about the book, but decided that an
intelligent reader would be perfectly capable of judging the quality of
the argument for him/herself.

 >"Beautified" with our feathers?  That's a vile phrase.

Wow!  I will never again read or hear those lines of Polonius's without
thinking that it is a deliberate inside joke taking a slap at Greene (or
whoever wrote "Groats-worth").  But WS used "beautified" once before in
TGV,IV.i.53 (... seeing you are beautified/ With goodly shape ...).
