Thanks again, Andreas.

See the enclosed module.  So, even with induction and cases, it still looks to me like it is erasable - or, as you say, that there is no computational content in N.  It is surprising to me that so much about the naturals could be devoid of computational content.  I have a hard time believing that this is correct - but I don't see anything wrong with it.
