Yes, I was thinking about some means to say that in A || B Lout should
first size the B and then constrain A to be height(b) @High (or vice
versa), and similarly for // and @Wide.  When constrained symbol is
receiptive, that seems exactly what you're talking about.  I'm not
sure yet if my concept of this feature can be usefully applied to
non-receiptive symbols.
