That must be the formula! Each of the features you describe is clearly present,
though I think it may take a while for me to grow the extra hand. I've been
trying for 20-odd years to grow an extra leg. One time, at a party, having had
a few drinks, I was asked by a woman in whom I might have had just a bit too
much interest, "What is your problem?" and I told her that it was that one of my
legs was longer than the other two. She wasn't impressed, but it didn't help
... <sigh>
