I noticed the *h3... Hmmm, I'm just wondering if it's possible
to analyse that stem with the help of the o-grade instead. Thus,
perhaps *gWerx- or *gWorx- versus *gWrox-. (Of course, *x here
is to designate a uvular aspirate corresponding to both *H2 and
*H3 of traditional notation).

Just thinkin'.
