I meant it, I wouldn't dare to provoke you by punning.

You just outstarted me, that's the etymology by which I wanted to
supersede my -Id-derivative. The only difference would be that I
haven't heard of *pIzd-E-ti and analyzed *bUzd-E-ti, Lith.
bezde.'ti 'the same' and *buzina 'elder (Sambucus)' (may be of the
same root in it's full original form, not suffixed with -d- and
heterosyllabic, meaning 'odoriferous plant').
