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 Conway-Doyle 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.
