Heh. If she thinks the relational tuple vs. ordered n-tuple difference is insurmountable, she ought to try getting a mathematician and a theoretical physicist to communicate. They use different definitions for so many of the same terms that they'd have to invent an entirely new language to talk about much of anything besides last night's game!
