Since my last posting I have rethought the names for non-coprime pieces
(see article When Beasts Collide) and two of the longest-range coprime
ones (see From Ungulates Outwards). As you wil see, I have abandoned the
vehicle-based names for non-coprime ones in favour of ungulates and birds
to match non-coprime ones of similar range.
