Yes, that's exactly what I'm stuck on. If "more important" or "more
popular" works tend to have more manifestations, then there might be
some signal as to probability of relevance in there. Which could be
factored in (in some *small* way). But I'm not sure whether/how one
would test that "if". At the moment you have me convinced that it's a

Here's a URL FWIW at this point in time---with a whole bunch of

partially baked, etc. etc....and things will still be changing for the
next few months. When it's closer to baked, I'll send it out again.
