trivial: adj. 1. Too simple to bother detailing. 2. Not worth the
   speaker's time.  3. Complex, but solvable by methods so well known
   that anyone not utterly cretinous would have thought of them
   already.  4. Any problem one has already solved (some claim that
   hackish `trivial' usually evaluates to `I've seen it before').
   Hackers' notions of triviality may be quite at variance with those
   of non-hackers.  See nontrivial, uninteresting.
