    Joyal really made a surprising, subtle and beautiful point. So far the most interesting remark in the whole dagger discussion, to my taste.

    Does anyone consider a bicategory of dagger-catgeories? Or dagger-functor categories? Hence a closed monoidal structure on dagger categories? Things like that?

    I think the category of dagger-categories and dagger-functors is actually cartesian closed. Giving you in particular a "locally-dagger" 2-category of dagger categories.

    Yes, best typo of all time.

    Please do not fix it.

    Thanks, I am practicing typos a lot.

    anyway: dinner is over, here are more details: the category of dagger-categories
