    I honestly don't recall.  JJ, do you remember how we did combined
movement in our face-to-face games?  Of course, I'm not sure that what we
did in face-to-face games should dictate what we do in online games, or that
what we did in the past was the right way to proceed.  But I'm still
curious...  Do you remember, JJ?

    Maybe I am not fully grasping the extent of the problems caused by blind
declaration.  As far as I can tell the only problem with blind (escrow)
declarations is the problem of coordination.  But that doesn't seem to me to
be a very weighty difficulty.  After all, how hard is it to send an email to
your allies?  So perhaps there is another consideration that I am
forgetting.  If so, please remind me what it is.
