No, slinkui is about fu'ivla vs. cmavo+lujvo, and the latter wins.  It
is trickier because the morphology of fu'ivla is less well-defined, the
test is harder to do in your head, and because there is little practice
with it (intentionally because of its difficulty) when we do type 3
fu'ivla (which are dominant these days) instead of type 4. We expect
that type 4 fu'ivla will eventually start to get assigned and used.
