Well, to tell you the truth, I missed your proposal among all the mail I
get for the game, still I believe my version is better: it does away with
the problem of overriding and deferring just by stating the obvious (I'm
sure Gavin will hate it) while still placing the game state out of reach as
far as rule 18 is concerned. It's more effective this way (and also more
elegant IMHO)
I originally wanted to make an CFJ, but since CFJ have no true power (by
game custom)...
I'm sorry, I'm not going to rescind it unless it receives negative feedback
from other players too.
