No. I could just as easily propose to set the game to what it would have
been had no rule numbered 1723 ever been created; it's not paradoxical
because we're not actually meddling with time, just with the game, and the
creation of the proosal is not in any game-related way dependent on r235.
Sure, I wouldn't have done it if no r235 had been created, but I *could*

And no, no r235 has been created, but one will have been as of the 24th.
