Exactly right. It reminds me of Lev Landau (any physicist knows the bell it
rings) being fond of classifying theoreticians into classes according to
their contributions to the modern physics. The principal creators of quantum
mechanics went into Class 1, other, still quite prominent, folks, occupied
Class 2, and so on. As to Einstein, he, in Landau's estimation, occupied
class 0 all by himself.
