I'm in the same boat, but this does illustrate nicely the difference  
between What Medieval People Might/Could Have Done in a given  
situation, and What They Probably Did Most Often. Which, if one is  
recreating medieval life, is an important consideration.

See, now I'm stuck with this image in my head of two serfs working in  
the fields, working up a good sweat in the sun. They pause briefly,  
and one of them says to the other, "You know whatte? I coulde doe wyth  
a couple of luke-warm ones ri3t aboutte nowe. Howe aboutte you?"

Adamanti... errr... Phlip
