Well, the particular issue described in that message is long gone.
What Brad is complaining about is non-strict expressions in the
outputs of append-relation members. An inheritance tree also forms
an append-relation, but AFAIK there is no way to have anything but
simple Vars in its outputs so the case wouldn't arise. Do you have
a specific problem example in mind?
