That's an interesting contribution, and more than a bit disconcerting
regarding peering in the inverse direction. [[ Maybe not as disconcerting
as you imagine? ]]
[[For example: Suppose we introduced into a population of 1000 a small
number of intruders, but considered intruders of different types:
1) Intruders with more power (to mate, among other things) but not improving
the total carrying capacity of the region.
2) Intruders who brought economic innovation with demographic advantage with
them and which they monopolized.
3) Intruders who brought innovation with demographic advantage with them but
which was quickly shared by all population.
I can guess that the y line "takeover" by the intruding lines would be
different in the three scenarios. All these scenarios can be modeled. ]]
