This was not what I meant, of course. Rather, functions f: N^N -->N^N  
regarded as being defined on free choice sequences  are to be  
understood as locally uniformly continuous or, equivalently, the  
unsecured sequences of g: N^N x N --> N, defined by g(a, n) = f(a) 
(n), are to be well-founded. (I was referring to something that I  
wrote in an earlier reply to Gabriel.)
