Meaning that the "rest" of any such line can be anything from empty to
infinitely long

WE would like to, but every time we try, WM objects.

Given a finite set of "digits" appearing as elements in those lines, one
can always create a new digit different from all of them and "complete "
each finite line with infinitely many copies of the new digit, thus
reducing the problem to Cantor's original format of all lines being
infinite.
