Ok. I had not read that into the original mail. But if this was the 
intention then indeed it
looks a lot more promising.


I had tried to generalise that to the fullest in a post to this mailing 
list [1],
but had got stuck. For want of time I have not been able to find a  way 
out of the
problems there described. I don't think it is impossible though, just I 
have to work
on other things in the mean time.
