I'm rereading _The Curse of Chalion_, for the nth time, and an odd 
thought occurred to me.

Lois is often accused of relying too heavily on coincidence - e.g., 
Miles running into Gregor in _The Vor Game_. Could it be that the 
invention of the Dratsab was a response to this - an excuse for using 
coincidence ad libitum?
