    I follow that in the case of two dimensions of error, i.e. two LOPs.
    Indeed, I suspect that the two LOPs would lead to normally-distributed
    errors in two perpendicular  dimensions even if the LOPs were not
    themselves perpendicular. What I am not sure about is whether three or
    more LOPs, each with normally-distributed errors, produce
    normally-distributed errors in each of two dimensions.
