Reading the Maharsha suggests that the Gemara's statement about the vav
being the middle letter of the Torah is allegorical. It means that this
vav symbolizes the central idea of the Torah (see the Maharsha for more,
or perhaps I'll get around to looking it up and summarizing it for the
forum some time - essentially, this vav has to do with the boundary
between good and evil).
