The idea was that while we might be traitors, we couldn't qualify as
quislings, and whether or not we could be collaborators (in the
relevant sense) would depend on how elastically that concept is
viewed.  That being said, there are some restaurants with whose
owners I wouldn't mind collaborating, at least for a dinner or two.
