Hey Richard--
Someone had in fact specifically asked David McF. for an illustration of
a world in which isosemanticity and truth of two statements would *not*
guarantee they wouldn't conflict. I'm not going to go dig through the
threads to see who it was, but I remember such a request, and I expect its
maker will probably speak up.
