Indeed, that's what I had reasoned.  But how
long has it been since we've had this separate
word "another"?  Can you envision a time in
the future where we'll be able to say "an another
cookie"?

Oh, and I was trying to think of an example
where something came between the "a" and
the "other", and there are, indeed, two rather
interesting ones:

(g) That's a whole other story.
(h) That's a whole nother story.
