By the way, the irony of my own argument is not at all lost on me: I'm
making this argument *despite* having outed myself as a rabid Lockian
proponent of property rights, right here on this very list ages ago. Still

applying physical property laws in all their dimensions to bits is becoming
ever-more apparent to me over time.
