The aspect I didn't appreciate is that the formal "you" is still semantically singular.  I should have realized that in French it is the same situation; one says "vous êtes venu," in a formal situation for just one person.

Thank you so much for all of your work on this site.  I haven't had to ask any questions before because all of them have been addressed in the discussion forums.
