A useful identity here that may help: f(x)^g(x) = e^(g(x)ln(f(x)) — because f(x)^g(x) = e^(ln(f(x)^g(x))), which can be expanded using the properties of logarithms.

It appears that, in the rare case that an internal glider collision (after a sufficient lapse) "restarts" a soup which later produces a block-laying switch engine, the switch engine is at least sometimes misclassified: https://catagolue.appspot.com/object/yl144_1_16_9cdca6cf6fa2778709f5c4224db518e7/...
