> In baseball, for example, you can "fly out". In the past tense, you can
say, for example, "He flied out to right" or "He flew out to right",
but "flied out" makes it clear that you are talking about baseball.

The ball flew out. The batter flied out. Unless the batter was
particularly unlucky....

PS: "Pointing device(s)," not "input device(s)." Please.

PPS: For VMS and Unix types, "mousen" will be fine.
