Sure, but my point was not so much whether the umlaut
improved clarity for German readers; my point was that
it would also improve clarity for non-German readers
aided by Babelfish. But I do think the experiment of
me reading the German code was weakened by the
similarity of German to English; plus, the code was
small enough that the intent of the code was just
plain obvious from the overall logical structure.
