   suppressed by its initial entropy. In the case of good decoherence, the
   mutual info between the system & the fragment is given solely by the
   fragment's entropy increase. For fairly mixed environments, this means a
   reduction by a factor 1-h, where h is the haziness of the env., i.e., the
   initial entropy of an env. qubit. Thus, even such hazy envs. eventually
   reveal the state of the system, although now the intercepted env. fragment
