Thanks, Eliot.  I kinda sorta meant to say this, but I see now that my
use of the term 'analytic' was clearly wrong.  Analytic granularity is
what the property set gives you; the grove plan is about effective or
application-relevant granularity.  (Sort of like: the property set
is the menu, and the grove plan is what you order:))  Right?
