Ooh, that seems like a good feature, and actually makes me wonder whether

There is nothing which cannot be answered by means of my doctrine," said a
monk, coming into a teahouse where Nasrudin sat.
        "And yet just a short time ago, I was challenged by a scholar with
an unanswerable question," said Nasrudin.
