According to the rules of this site as I understand it, we are encouraged not to post questions and then answer ourselves. However, I wonder if it is permissible to provide an answer which is a synthesis of other's answers.
Specifically, in this question I think there are many great parts to each answer, but find that no one answer is sufficient. I'm wondering it is permissible or advised to provide my own answer which is effectively a synthesis of the other answers with some minor tweaks along the way.
The original question was motivated by a request for elaboration on another answer and I think the best help would be a synthesis of the answers.
