      Another thought: if the problem was dishonesty regarding the paroles, why not
      stop that practice but continue the exchanges (ignoring the bean-counters)?
      That is, only exchange real prisoners. One would have absolute control, then: I
      release my 1000 prisoners to you when you release your 1000 to me.
