    I would but I don't feel like subscribing (also I've used the
Amulet toolkit briefly in the past so I'm generally aware of the
concepts here).  My experience with one-way constraints (mostly for
Motif) is that they are very difficult to get right, you almost never
get them right the first time, and when they go wrong the errors are
very difficult to track down.
