that would be great - thank you.

I think keeping the two options separate is probably better?

good - I think ignoreSelf is very clear (and you're right, simplify  
isn't so good).  "normalize" makes me think of other things - maybe  
not so good. "ignoreSymmetric" perhaps? (only makes sense if  
query=subject - perhaps there could be a check for that if user tries  
to invoke that option?)
