What do I think about that? I think that I should go off and get a copy of
Tony's book! This is the second time that I've had to admit I haven't read
his book, and this is a case where his discussion seems quite relevant to
the questions at hand. I'm hesitant to comment specifically on the points
you in the absence of looking at his argument in general; maybe Tony can
comment further.

in solidarity,

ps. As I recall from the earlier discussions, Tony also hadn't read my book.
Seems like a good basis for an exchange, Tony, if you have some author's
copies around. 8^)
