Sorry, my footnote was going to be: yes, I know that this might 
technically need to be *jImejpu' vaj 'e' vIwuq,* but saying this 
obscures my point a little, and I'm not convinced that I can't put an 
adverbial in front of an entire sentence-as-object construction as its 
own sentence. So for the purposes of this discussion, I'm going to put 
the adverbial in front.
