But the dispute is not about mathematics but about academic standards for 
assessing mathematical performance. Wittgenstein would surely hurl a poker at 
anyone who suggested this was a case of mathematicians coming to blows over 
mathematics itself. (What he might do, if it were suggested his own doctorate 
was awarded in a rather informal and unrigorous manner, may only be guessed*).
