  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.  If it is
  urgent, do not use the word "urgent".  If you need an immediate answer, give
  me a reason, do not shout "for your immediate attention".  Thank you.
