None Restrictions on G4PVReplica and parameterised volumes

Hi,

I've been experimenting with replicated and parameterised volumes and just wanted to get some clarification on the restrictions on these as stated in Section 4.1.4.2 of the developers manual:

"Replicas may be placed inside other replicas... . Normal placement volumes may be placed inside replicas, ... Parameterised volumes may not be placed inside."

I presume that 'Replica' in these statements refers to the logical volume that will be replicated inside the mother logical volume? If so, then am I correct in thinking that the logical volume which will be replicated inside the mother

1) Can be a logical volume containing daughter repeated physical volumes placed with G4PVReplica?

2) Can be a logical volume containing daughter physical volume(s) placed with G4PVPlacement?

3) Can not be a logical volume containing daughter repeated physical volumes placed with G4PVParameterised?

In case 2, if the logical volume to be replicated by G4PVReplica is, say 'A', which contains a daughter physical volume 'B' that was placed by G4PVPlacement, are there further restrictions on B? i.e. can the logical volume of B contain daughter physical volumes placed with G4PVParameterised?

Apologies if these are stupid questions, but I want to ensure I'm getting things correct!

Thanks,

Ben Morgan.
