(Apple; originally from the introduction to Tom Lehrer's song
"It Makes A Fellow Proud To Be A Soldier") Used ironically to
indicate the speaker's lack of the quantity in question; a
mythical schedule slot for accomplishing tasks held to be
unlikely or impossible. Sometimes used to indicate that the
speaker is interested in accomplishing the task, but believes
that the opportunity will not arise. "I'll implement the
automatic layout stuff in my copious free time."
