You are right, the simple fact that the N was dropped must have set me on the
wrong foot. But I still remember there was a way (then maybe even longer ago)
that you could just set one node and be done with it.
But there you go: change one simple thing and there are people who are
completely off track. You can make fun of this, but that's what happens.
Still haven't found a mention that the N was going to be dropped.
