Another thought about the complaint that Policant's appearance is a
'deus ex machina'...

The usual thing with such contrivances[1] is that someone shows up
unexpectedly and solves everyone's problems.

Leaving aside the question of how unexpected Policant's appearance
actually is, nearly all the problems have *already been solved* by the
time Policant manifests himself.



[1] I categorically refuse to attempt the plural of 'deus ex machina'.
