I should try something like that for Superhuman World and some of its 
imprints.  But it could be complicated.  For instance, I am about to 
publish Powernaut story number [SW10-PN-128], which is also something 
like [SW10-178], but only if I only count stuff I've published to RACC. 
  Otherwise it's more like [SW10-378].

Will that make it (say) [8F-121] and [8F-PW-1] at the same time?

I dunno, I think we need to call a committee in Congress to discuss this 
new scheme.  8{o>
