How magnificently ....  cryptic.  Do you suppose they could have
possibly come up with an arrangement bearing LESS geometric relation to
physical reality? You'd think putting QD where Heart is, Heart where
BaseIO is, and moving BaseIO and QA down one position would make far
more sense.

But maybe this is to make sure they make no sense to the casual user and
only the FE can make sense of them .....
