It does.  I am objecting to a philosophical disease whereby one takes
the concept 'pawn' to be something independent of how one uses a pawn in
chess.  Eric may not have this disease and I may have been reading more
into Eric's comments than was there.  If so, I apologize for going on
and causing confusion.
