xorxes was right: zilxru *was* an abomnination.

I don't really know how I came to translate it into {mi}. That was an
observative, obviously, and it should have been translated as "Many

OK, As for pe la xorxes. comment, I think that no'a does repeat its
arguments unless they are overridden, being closely related to go'i, and
knowing that go'i certainly does act that way (because if it didn't, you
couldn't use it to answer questions).
