But if Silk-in-Mainframe is enough in charge that he can get the Whorl to
leave early, he's probably enough in charge to prevent "Pas" from escaping

But then I'm of the opinion that "Passilk" implies that the only Pas left
in Mainframe is a Pas that is mostly controlled by Silk's downloaded
persona anyway.
