It would make things easier -- but i am not building in
coercions like that at the moment as I want to keep

Same with not allowing logLuri to take a relative.
Good while we are trying to get URI terminology right to
be as precise as possible.

PS: (The list output bug is tricky ... that will take some getting back
into the code)
