Does there have to be a specific prior example of something that is
explained by the description of grammar in TKD?  If the verb were
something intransitive like {qet} or {Dugh}, the *only* reasonable
interpretation is "I cause you to [do something] for my heart".  Or
would you also consider that to be an example of multiple indirect

One of the reasons I think {ghaHvaD quHDaj qawmoH} works as clearly as
it does is that "heritage" can't really remember something, so there's
no reason to consider the alternate (and older) interpretation.
