It's also a nice alternative to those variant comparison formulae we saw in HolQeD 13.1 (p.9-10) :

  ro'qegh'Iwchab 'ey law' qagh 'ey law'
  the rokeg blood pie is as delicious as the gagh

  tlhIngan HoS law' 'Iw HoS law'
  the Klingon is as strong as blood

  tlhIngan woch law' tera'ngan woch nIb
  the Klingon is as tall as the Terran

  SuvwI' ghung law' qagh ghung rap
  the warrior is as hungry as gagh

  the *racht* is as heavy as the *rokeg* blood pie (HQ 13.1:8)

This is a nice example of quality comparison:

Q N1, nIb N2
N1 is as Q as N2.
