Remembering your earlier ideas for your approach, I think so, although I
must say that I'm not sure if I really understand it. I keep having
problems following your ideas sometimes, but that's mostly because I'm

pre-resolvable pieces into the FO tree while you only do the
specialities in the LMs, right?
