What is the expected method / constraints? E.g. one could destroy the settled honeyfarm and construct a block in empty space by colliding gliders. Or one could use a slow salvo aimed at the settled honeyfarm to transform it into a block in the desired location. Can the honey farm be turned into a b...

It is possible to make a converter with adjusting output clearance?

Why does the dove have a special role in conduits even though only 3 conduits are known with it as an input (and all output a glider, which can be easily obtained another way).
