Then I was right about not mapping "is elem in both sets" to that
expression!  ;-)

But I did make the leap from Serhiy's original expression to "is elem in
both sets," which *may* mean that Serhiy's original expression is
confusing, but it's probably just further evidence that I'm not actually
as sharp as I think I am.
