Really?!  The Rambam didn't have olives?!  All the geonim and rishonim
that give shiurim (and there are many listed in RACN's Shiurei Torah and
Shiurei Mikveh) didn't have olives?!  How can that be?

Zev Sero               A citizen may not be required to offer a 'good and
zev at sero.name          substantial reason' why he should be permitted to
                        exercise his rights. The right's existence is all
                        the reason he needs.
