Now I'm curious. "Foonly" is used as a variable name in the "tutorial"
portion of the "Finite State Fantasies" computer comic by Rich Didday.
(See my web site for a scanned copy.) Wonder if this was a reference to
the TRON computer, or vice-versa? Or was this a geek-term like "Foo, Bar,
and Blech" already?
