As in, when overplanted, it kills everything 
around it.  You have to tear out the pines 
to plant a decent lawn.  On the other hand, 
they make a decent wind break precisely 
because they are flexible.

Systems interoperate.  Data is portable.

Uhhh, more cryptic than usual today, Len :~)

"Pine" as in soft, easily workable wood that is marginally suitable for almost anything, 
but not really optimal for most high-quality work?  Or "pine" as the tree that quickly 
colonizes a disturbed area, but is replaced by the hardwoods once it has stabilized the 
local ecology a bit?
