  Oops, sorry.  I sent an example to someone who replied to me, but somehow
lost the Cc to the list.  It's attached.

  The essential thing that is a problem is that the music involves large
chords that are intermeshed, so vertical collision as well as horizontal
collision becomes an issue.  Er, maybe my example makes it clearer.

  As the comments in the score say, the first two measures show some
versions of I was trying to do; the third measure shows what I actually
did. (and what I was trying to acheive)
