      Wow. Trust you to come up with a finer cut of the division between
      the Alps and the Carpathians! It looks as if I will have to go back
      and find more precise writings on how they determined the separation
      of the two ranges ...

      Splitting hairs can be a pain; splitting mountain ranges is much more fun!
