‘It’s a minimalist dust that I use’

(Here’s an incidental thing: I just spent at least half an hour trying to pass parameters to the Vimeo oEmbed embed machine. I suppose I wanted to make the player more, uh, minimal. Well, it turns out that Vimeo Plus members can prevent people from customising some aspects of their embeds, and evidently Merlin has chosen to do that. Which is fine, but is there a parable in there?)
