This article was originally dedicated to Ivan Karp, my graduate mentor, on the occasion of his retirement. Sadly I now have to dedicate it to his memory. Were it not for him, I would never have asked the questions that led to this article, and I'm glad he had the chance to read it, prompting a characteristically productive exchange, about two months before his untimely death.
