This stuff is all very interesting!

I suppose I'm unlikely to look up the references, but what's _Thrust_ and
who made the remark?

As for the century earlier, I don't follow that.  Typhon had two heads
when the _Whorl_ was launched, and he still did when he "retired to his
blameless couch".  Could he have been in that unpleasant state for a
century?  Or are you suggesting that Typhon has performed the same
maneuver more than once?
