The prefix pe- is for when address multiple people... when there is no object.
yI- is: 
singular, no object; 
singular, single third person object; 
and plural, single third person object.

I used the wrong one.  I will take my three lashings at qep'a'... you WILL be 
there won't you?  :P

I understand.
I too felt that je wasn't really needed, just like the english wasn't clear as 
to which meaning.  But adding je would make it clear.  So it's up to you; 
without je matches the english, with je makes it clear that each site contains 
all of the qualities, not just one, or more, of the qualities.
