Since your software is bad, you should add it manually.

Perhaps I should have been a little more clear. I am discussing

the ASSA, not trying to prove it but to show that it is self consistent.

You are right in the sense that I left something out. I am

assuming a reasonable measure distribution based on the physical

situation. For example, the measure could be proprtional to the number of

implementations of a computation, as I like to assume.

It is also possible to assume an unreasonable measure

distribution, like the RSSA. This of course would require new, strange

and complicated laws of psycho-physics.

So what I am really doing is showing that (ASSA + reasonable

measure (RM)) is self consistent. However, the way we have been using the

term ASSA, RM has almost always been assumed.

In any case it is always true that some way of calculating the

measure distribution is needed. Your claim was that the RSSA is needed.

My example shows that RM does the job.
