I see fintype_range, an instance proving that the range of a function with fintype domain is a fintype, but I have never worked with finite sets/types before. Should I be switching to and fro between finite sets and fintypes? Should I be letting type class inference and/or automation do the work for me? This stuff looks pretty easy in maths so hopefully isn't too painless here.

Thanks Kenny. I have spent all evening reducing the statement that Spec(R) is compact to the case of covers by a basis ;-)

nice
