I guess that "militant simultaneist" may be interpreted here as a
pro-Sraffian Marxist. May I suggest that there may be "simultaneists" who
are not Sraffian?

I met Bruna Ingrao a few years ago. My impression was that she is not
interested in these debates anymore. The same may be said for a Marxian
anti-Sraffa Italian economist of the '70s, Marina Bianchi, who wrote a
wonderful book on The Classics and Marx on the theory of value, and now
writes on methodological issues.
