As far as I understand, this is correct if you only run bridges (because
a circuit never uses two bridges), but what if someone (like me) runs a
bridge and a normal relay as well? IMHO you don't want to use a relay
which is operated by the same operator as your bridge? Please correct
me, if I'm wrong.
