Markm (with help from me) sketched an implementation to the case of
partial orgls that stumped me at the planning meeting. It was based
on his insight that log to the base 2 of infinity is 64. Thus, If you
have a potentially infinite space, a tree to represent it (at least
till later versions of our system) would only have to be 64 deep.
This gave an upper bound on the height of newly created partial orgls.
>From there we came up with a solution that doesn't have wierd numbers
like 64 in it. I'll be working out the real algorithms (and checking
our burden of assumption) in the next few days.
PS Yes, a group of assumptions that simultaneously interact is called
a burden (as of now). dean :-)
