One ``yes'' (which then?) or two ``yeses''?
(Hint: the answer ``yes'' is OK ;-)
Anyway, I would not agree that there is something like inner or outer
envelope -- think, e.g., of 8-shaped paths. One can only speak about
leftside and rightside envelope with respect to the direction
of the pen movement -- these are well-defined entities.
