I think it's just a bad idea on Amazon's part--since these
recommendations don't cost anything, they're just a new
kind of spam--and I expect (hope) they'll figure that out
soon and drop it.

As for this particular phenomenon (two cross-discommendations
for the two Ant books), I think it was just a joke.  Steve,
Erik, is there anything you want to tell us? ;)
