Hi John

My previous assumption was that the content names (e.g., as obtained from

Names are always binary. There are not ASCII or Unicode or numbers.

But I'm starting to realize some of the content names for larger content

Sequence numbers are encoded according to naming convention.

So, I suppose my question is:  is there any reasonably thorough

So, if I'm using Zipf-Mandelbrot for example, I should think I'd be able to

Yours, Junxiao
