Ok, good. That's more or less what I had figured earlier, but then I started
thinking it would be different because the range of possible scores would be
different and not necessarily known at the outset. But, if it's all relative
from beginning to end, then that wouldn't be a problem. Thanks for the clear
explanation; even if you're only speculating it seems to make the most
