Actually, it was intended to be strictly relevant, although the Hulk,
or Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde would have been better examples.  The
question was how we determine serial identity -- if person P is
Dr. Jekyl, Mr. Hyde, then Dr. Jekyl again, are Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde
identical?  If so, then if IP address 111.222.333.444 is foo.com, then 
bar.com, then foo.com again, are foo.com and bar.com identical?

All the best,
