"Dig: A piece on its side turns upright, either where it is, under
what it points at (uprighting that as needed), or beyond."

Is that "either X or beyond"? Or is it "either X, [or] Y, or beyond"?

So, if this rule is applied to the original "house" formation, what
could the player produce? I believe it's meant to be the player's
choice of these:

    * A stack of large on small on medium.
    * A stack of small on medium, followed by large pointing at that stack.
    * A large pointing away from a stack of small on medium.
    * A stack of medium on small on large.
    * A medium pointing to a stack of small on large.
    * A stack of small on large, followed by a medium pointing away.

Have I got the right idea?
