bales on edge - would that not provide a more difficult key for the 
eventual plaster, the key being the shoot-ends of the material? i wonder 
how the walls settle? the crucial loadbearing zone being between the 
bale-strings....any data on this?
with regards to the key - cladding of another sort could then be considered 
- for instance, [external] the transparent corrugated rainshield as was 
used in the sarah wigglesworth house in islington. internally, a slat and 
board finish also allows for more wall use - its notoriously difficult to 
fix anything a daub wall....
less 'pure', i know, but we dont need to remain purists, eh?
