well, your argument was that we must keep nmt's unique, since otherwise
group_aliases would be quadratic, as far as I understand. Since it is
already quadratic, this does not seem to be an issue.

You need to put something to virtual operands; I just need some
representant for the newly created group.

They are not; these are stored directly at the pointers.
