Last week or so I mentioned that we need a d.execution.
A second dimension, as yet unnamed, could do FORK and JOIN.
In this method, a triggers b triggers c and d.
(If you want them to happen at the same time, you fork 'em.)
c triggers e, e triggers h; d triggers f triggers g triggers i.
Whichever happens first (h or i) waits for the other.
In other words,
OUTGOING (d to f) is a fork (by interpretation);
INCOMING (g to i) is a JOIN (by interpretation).
I can't quite state this more exactly yet.
Something about connecting plusward/negward after a connection...
