Fair enough, though I think the problem of trimming is going to apply to most other continuous things, because being continuous is actually part of their value. Like cloth, for example, if you keep trimming away pretty soon you don't have cloth, you've got scraps. It seems to me that anything that can be trimmed without hurting its value is probably more of a pile of things than a continuous thing.

And trimming seems sort of integral to the algorithm. Even if they can get the amount of trimming down, it's still...*shrug* Not so much about reality?

But I had no idea this was a class of algorithms, or that mathematical algorithms had ideas about being envy-free (or having anything to do with emotions), so that was interesting. I'm actually amazed there's enough material on this one thing for a whole book, too!
