A lot of this is due to the interaction of a foreign ruleset. For

Agoran rule 754 would cause things like "rule" to be interpreted as
"Agoran Rule" without this section - though, this is pending

Basic stuff to set up the agoran end of the limited partnership.

Limited partnerships are required by agoran rules to have consent of all
members; that is the intent of this point.

Ensures that agora recognizes the B Nomic ruleset as having force...
