I could not find who suggested Plaga's paper recently, but
thanks to whoever it was. Whether Plaga is right or wrong,
his introductory remarks and general presentation are
simply superb.

There is even the very noteworthy (or humorous, I can't decide)
sentence which reads "Independent of what one thinks about the
MWI a priori, this is also a very systematic way to make
experimental progress in the  question of the interpretation
of QM, because in the MWI the predictions for any conceivable
experiment are free from philosophical subtleties...(!)"


P.S. Thanks also to Saibal:
