Really?  Given how poorly the system performs with that many inheritance
children, I've got a hard time believing either that this is common or
that ruleutils is your worst problem with it.

I think that's because the unions are a nested binary tree so far as the
parsetree representation goes.  We could probably teach ruleutils to
flatten the display in common cases, but it might be a bit tricky to be
sure we don't create any lies about unusual nestings.
