I don't consider Roby's test cases are horrible. Anyone who criticizes
the hype seems to be criticized.  Look at the argument of Roby: "But,
then again, if your operations are that minimal, you probably aren't
creating enough data to need compression in the first place!"

Please do not preach me about ceteris paribus clauses used in the
philosophy of sciences.

The common nonsense peddled is like: It all depends. But the question
precisely is this: can one *systematically* explain negative cases?

I am being more charitable with Roby than with the oracle hype, of course!
