Well and good, but searching for "N'Ko" in the registry with either
grep or Google will find nothing at all.  I don't think that's
an acceptable state of affairs.

The present impossibility of giving a scientific explanation is no proof
that there is no scientific explanation. The unexplained is not to be
identified with the unexplainable, and the strange and extraordinary
nature of a fact is not a justification for attributing it to powers
above nature.  --The Catholic Encyclopedia, s.v. "telepathy" (1913)
