Why should it matter to me what you call it? Is that an argument?

If you read what I have written on this subject you may noticed that there 
are ways to do essentially the same things that RootSearch attempts to do and obtain the complete set of roots (provably complete) (I am not referring to using Reduce).  That, I do call "superior" and really I don't care if anyone thinks it's "snobbery" or not.
