Wow! I agree with you on this one Robert.

Way back on Tue, 19 Oct 1999, so long ago that I still felt clever 
for figuring out that Olivine was Hammerstone and Marble's daughter, 
I wrote this.

[Long passage citing textual evidence that Olivine is Hammerstone and 
Marble's daughter, and other stuff, snipped. Of course I eventually 
realized that the reason no one else had mentioned this idea before 
me was that everyone else had figured it out already and thought is 
was too obvious to mention.]
