but this is by definition impossible: if there are N different
possible lengths, there clearly can be no single answer to the
question of what "halfway" means. there's no magic here, and its
nothing to do with GMPI - you're describing a possibility that does
not exist.

as i said above, if there are multiple lengths, there clearly can be
no single such controller. by definition, not because we are not
clever enough.
