For almost a year, I've been trying to figure out ways to extract
results from Wolfram|Alpha output for subsequent use in Mathematica in
any way other than incorporation of pod graphics, but I've concluded
that obstruction of that activity is one of W|A's principal design
goals.

Even (illegal, according to a strict constructionist view of the Terms
of Use) very slick things that worked with Import[ ] a year ago seem
to have now been blocked.

I have trouble imagining the technical or business cases that steer in
the present direction, and I just can't believe that this development
approach will survive, but while the maturation proceeds, looking
things up in books and keying them into programs is still best by far.
