Well...I believe that would work the same way with either of
the systems, really.

Well, let me say what *my* understanding of adjIQ is, and you

With adjIQ, you can spend XP to increase your IQ as before, or
you can spend XP to buy adjIQ.  The cost of two points of adjIQ
is the same as one point of IQ.  adjIQ is used only for purposes
of determining how many points worth of talents you can learn.
IQ rolls and the IQ limit of the talents, use your normal IQ. 

I *think* this is really very close to the tada! system, with 
the exceptions noted in my previous e-mail.
