RE: Enlightenment via avoiding the T-word

I knew if I read down this thread far enough Len would 
mention groves! And if he didn't I was going to...

It seems like if you generalise Michael's notions of 
attaching generic annotations to the results of a 
parse you have a grove. And picking out the parts 
relevant to a particular application (or class of 
application) is a grove plan.

I know there is a lot of baggage attached to that 
particular term, but I've seen suggestion of a similar 
mechanism appear time and again. Even in Simpleton circles.
