It might be worthwhile submitting your argument for publication (I'm guessing that it's your proof or your exposition).
I'm glad you understand the proof now. I'm guessing that my equine exposition is goofy enough to be original. I'm guessing that the proof I posted is *not* new, but I wouldn't know; I haven't had time to study the ConwayDoyle proof yet (thanks for the reference), and I haven't seen any of the other proofs. Anyway, I don't think it's worthwhile to submit it for publication; it's a rather specialized result for which other proofs are available.
