Especially merlyn's answers about having to make a mnemonic for the nameable but unstoreable object, then storing the name as a hash key.
Huh? When did I say that?

    You were talking about having to describe a dance move to yourself ("Put right hand on hip") rather than being able to imitate it by watching it while someone else did it. Thus, I inferred that you could not store the move itself, but by naming the move, you were able to store and retrieve it properly. I may be guilty of trying to be too clever. :(
