I'm still catching up on several threads after an illness; among others,
I'm fascinated by the discussion of potential ESCs. This is just to pass
on a quick thought: how about "strength-matching" as a name instead of
"strength-comparing"? To me it connotes ideas like finding complementary
strengths, identifying the needed strengths for a situation, etc. (If I
understand your boson-fermion comparison rightly, I think it's in that
