    You have recreated the basis for a most interesting and powerful scheme which
    has been previously created, explored and applied extensively by William
    Combs of the Boeing Corporation. The scheme of using the two rules results in
    a rule base which expands linearly with the number of inputs, as compared to
    exponentially with the single rule. You can reach him at
