Let's have a little clarification. I wrote the above paragraph and I 
assume it. Dag wrote the (indigo) sentences below and I got them out of 
my post because I don't agree. I'm not with or against someone. I just 
want to discuss on a devel list, not to troll or give any food to some 
flam war.

Ok, I assume that say that _x and _y having been built on different 
instances would have been a more correct assertion, but after saying 
that, doesn't the difference between these two instances still remains.
