> But you may be in luck: it looks like Deri has donned the RCA Man cape, and
maybe the condition causing this lockup will turn out to be simple to fix.

That would be great if so.

> But also, in the final analysis, any algorithmic count will be an
approximation.  A human reader can recognize "doctor-patient relationship" as
three words but "pre-industrial civilization" as two, but try teaching an
algorithm that distinction without bringing AI into it.  Hyphens are sometimes
word dividers and sometimes not.

Yes, the closer you get to it the thornier the issue appears.  Bit like trying
to measure coastlines (or is that coast-lines).
