I see...  we're worried about one move attacking more than two groups.  I
agree, reading is the only really good solution.  Though perhaps it works
better to decide that there has to be a way to connect some of the groups
so that there are only two, and call it a connection problem?  I'm afraid
my understanding of go gets a little shaky here...

OK, that makes more sense now.

Agreed.
