Priority as counterpossible dependence

I've been having a discussion with Joe Salerno over at his blog Knowability on whether moving away from the standard Lewis-style semantics for counterfactuals with impossible antecedents (as he and Brit proposed in their recent piece in the Reasoner) might allow us to respond to some worries Michael Potter had in his most recent book concerning a particular way of thinking of the priority of members over sets in platonist interpretations of the Iterative Conception of set. (Phew!)

I'm not sure whether the suggestions will pan out at all, but in case some of you might be interested, Joe's post and our discussion are here.
