Oh, ok. I thought that "This being small..." would have been
something you'd say while pointing to a miniature Groo. IE: "This (ie:
Groo) being small has its advantages". It is a rather strange 'form'
(for lack of a better word) of English to be used in Groo, don't you
think? It kind of through me off. But I see what you mean now. Good
thing I didn't major in English,eh? :-}
