This is a question that bothered me also.  I tried to ask it of Wolfe 
when he was on the People chat, but I was so flustered that I 
confused Blue with Green, and Gene gave an accurate, but unhelpful 
reply.  I made up for it later though...

I think this question definitely should be on the train, and if it 
matters, I think the first formulation is the best.
