Rahel wonders about configurable vs. reconfigurable.

Like Linda, I've always taken it for granted that "you can
either configure something or you can't." But context is all.
If you need the distinction-- for example, if configuring an
item may mean breaking pieces off it that can't later be
re-attached-- then you're entitled to make the distinction.

we've lost our control, our health and our connection to the
land as a result. - Glen Martin, _San Francisco Chronicle_
