Aack!  More homophones!  :-)  Yep, spring can also mean metal coils that
can be compressed.  Jeez!  We've got all these thousands upon thousands
of words, with pairs and triplets of synonyms, and yet we still insist
on piling multiple meanings on poor little monosyllables like "spring",
"bat", and the worst of them all, the dreaded "set".
