*jIQuchchu'* means you couldn't be any happier. *jIQuchqu'* emphasizes 
your happiness, putting your happiness above average, but it doesn't put 
an upper limit on it: someone who is *Quchqu'* might also be *Quchchu',* 
or might not.

But it's not really a scale. The two words are used to express different 
ideas for different reasons.
