Actually you're right, the definition allows that. I was thinking not of
the definition but of the list of steps we're going through, and we're
using the "if there's a clear winner, then we're done, else build a
Schwartz set" method, as opposed to the equivalent "build a Schwartz set,
and if that has only one member, that's the winner" procedure.
