pushed the bus backwards (and a supervisor checking they don't run anybody
over), the situation would be exactly the same (OK, that would be even more

Can we make do without such a role? Sure we can. I wanted to be explicit,
rather than implicit.

It's not crucial, maybe I should just drop proposing it. Good thing I
didn't waste time describing it on the wiki then.
