WRONG! AGAIN!! AS USUAL!!!

While we can remove any one FIS and have something left, or even any
finite set of FISs and have something left, note that since every member
is in some FIS, removing all FISs removes all members too.

If one made infinitely many attempts there would not be a "last"
position.

If there is a position which does not exist, there must be a first one
(or a last position that does exist), since positions form a well
ordered set.

I do not see any zeroes other than those extraneous ones before the
radix point.

Substituting 2 for the first 0 results in 2.111....
