That's the theory, but for practical reasons (not giving Jonathan a thundering apoplexy, for instance), parameters are currently restricted to a single constraint in front, and will continue to be restricted until we get more experience with the sorting of multiple dispatch candidates using multiple constraints. See the note in S12, "Multiple constraints".

    So chalk it up as "implementation limitation",
    and beware of any rules concerning multiple constraints as they are subject to change.

    "Single constraint" means not combining junctions and subsets?
