"I can justify every line of my book"

i wrote above that we've achieved "most of the meanings of most of the words in FW" but i think that may be too kind...

if joyce could justify every line, every word, every character and punctuationmark, we can't aim any lower... so finding a meaning (or two or three or four) that accounts for most of the letters in a passage isn't nearly enough-- we need to account for every letter.

so if there's a word like "pftjschute" and we've only got a good match for 'chute', i'll try to state this explicitly like 'why PFTJSchute?'

and this means that 'most of the letters of most of the words' could still leave ~one word/meaning for each missing letter.
