I don't know Jeff, I think you should let this drop. It doesn't seem like
a big deal and we have already started using grandma, mother and baby for
things. We are really over-analyzing the whole thing. I think you should
just go with the majority on this one :-).

I don't think this is correct. Jarl's document seems to make an explicit
point that there is only one BL (Parent) per Piper program running. So
the DL will only communicate with one BL. The BL itself will be
responsible for splitting processes up using the whole Mother to Baby
thing. At least, this is my understanding.
