I think you're right to worry. :) From what I understand, the minute you use
-kx the only thing you can control is the last controller, so it's not
actually possible to have two controllers targeted to a cop which are
themselves targets to other controllers. It seems that for each cop you can
only have one controller being controlled (which must be specified last if
several controllers are targeted to a cop). Flaw or feature?
