Well, I overlooked this in the previous post:

 Grandfather = logic.Fact()

 Grandfather(Grandfather.Grandfather, Grandfather.Grandson) (
    Father(Grandfather.Grandfather, Grandfather.Son)
    Father(Grandfather.Son, Grandfather.Grandson))

Here an iterator per use of Father() seems just right
for backtracking over GrandFather().
