I've documented that rule as follows.


# Make generator 'overrider-id' be preferred to
# 'overridee-id'. If, when searching for generators
# that could produce a target of certain type,
# both those generators are amoung viable generators,
# the overridden generator is immediately discarded.
# The overridden generators are discarded immediately
# after computing the list of viable generators, before
# running any of them.
