Quo vadis AAAARG metaphor limits



I think we need a new metaphor--the bush just isn't up to the level of
the discussion that's being hung on it.  How about trying, say, a
copse of poplar trees?  Those are normally all clones of one tree,
spread by underground stems, but once established each tree can
function as an individual.  Is this a great metaphor or what!
