Hi Manu,

When I get the chance I will reply to Ivan's post, but in the
meantime, could I just respond to this:

Why do you say that? Up until the recent posts, I had thought things
were going pretty well:

 * myself and Ben had reduced our 'differences' very precisely to the
behaviour of
   one attribute in one position;

 * I'd explained how the way that Ben was approaching things was incredibly
   close to how they were a while ago, and that a small tweak to
maintain symmetry
   in the behaviour of @rel/@rev would give us every use-case we wanted;

 * Ben replied that he thought we might be close to a resolution, but asked for
   some clarification on some edge-cases;

 * I clarified those, and was waiting for Ben's reply.

That doesn't sound like deadlock to me. Of course it might be, but I
think we should give Ben a bit of space to reply before throwing our
hands up, and declaring game over.
