This is a complex and valid point. Rather than attempt to answer it here, I
hope that I will be able explain my approach to it in the documentation for
the type. All I will say is that I have been giving consideration to the
problem. and there are various solutions.
BTW Thanks for the generous comments, and thanks for sticking to physics !
