Heh. Could you be slightly more verbose ? :) Does this mean that the
element writer was too lazy, that it has a specific purpose, or that it

To me it seems weird that fixation should fail just because there are
multiple caps. Why not go over each of them, and return as soon as
something was fixated ?
