Isomorphic copies aren't separate subjects (rather just representations
of one really fault-tolerant one), so clearly 1:1. No wonder people are
confused though with the subject line setting them up for a completely
incorrect assumption ;]
If you'd have the exoself arbitrarily differentiate the conditional
copies, again clearly 100:1...
