There I go mis-typing LD's Latin in the notebooks, multiplying the 
brokenness of the Creation.  LD has in fact written:

    fecit deus *timorem*

God this listserv is really getting Gnostic.  We should start typing out 
our emails in geometrically arranged Greek letters.

As a result of this, I now think that the "sponsor" bit is at once LD's 
innovation and a sort of charm against the Demiurge, ensuring good luck.
