Yes, it turns out that it double-bounced before it got to
lists.debian.org.

Thanks. Should be:
. . c. An option, A, defeats an option, B, if N(A,B)*V(A,B) is

Why? Describing this would make the draft more verbose -- what does
this complexity do for us?

Thanks, I overlooked this when I renumbered the options.
