Oh, damn. I based my analysis on compareo, not comparo. The former means to appear, be visible, to exist, be present, and is indeed comparere, while the latter means to form into pairs, match, and hence compare in English, and is comparare. Thanks for the push to go check this properly. -- Guide to non-spammers: If you want to send me a business proposal, please be specific and do not put "business proposal" in the Subject header.
