That was why I asked. I wrote "in place of" meaning the former. And
then you wrote "The two are not interchangeable." I hadn't said
anything about interchangeability; I wrote only "in place of." Yet you
appeared to have read me as saying something about mutual universal
interchangeability rather than a sometimes better one-way substitution
for an over-used and sometimes misplaced "influence."
