      Well, I dumped the idea. I've got a book to translate and couldn't do
      both... Grr.

      It would depend on how you want to do the cord. I'd go with a pair per
      side, because that way I won't have the cord going over the edge of the
      lame; rather, the cord would be *under* it. You'd have the option to
      have a knot on one end f the cord, running the free end up through one
      hole and back out the other, then across, meeting a similar cord from
      the other side; or the option of one long cord that crosses your arm
      twice (once whole, and once tied together).

      No set rule, since it isn't an official piece of sode. I don't think
      they did that. You can just tie a bow-knot, if you want, or you can make
      it look more structural with a frog. The problem with frogs, though, is
      that they rely on pressure to stay closed (unless you put the latches on
      them) as they are pulling from equal directions, and this wouldn't have
      pulling per-se. You'd want a secure line. I'd go with a knot.
