Hi Beck, nice to hear your cyber-voice on list! I'm away to bed, and not up
to proper thinking tonight on the interesting questions you've raised, but I
can tell you (I had to ask too!) that obDWJ is short for 'obligatory mention
of Diana Wynne Jones' or some variant on that - a way of reminding ourselves
to keep vaguely on-topic, or (more often) a fig leaf to hide that fact that
we are not.
