  You saw the term, and it sounded like a good idea....

  For practicality's sake, the overhead in handling the structure and
the associative neural "weights" in anything beyond a single-layer
Hopfield network is far too great to justify in return for what you get.

  This isn't to say it couldn't be done, but the guts of it sure sren't
going to get handled in LPC.
