    I was wondering whether there was some way it might fit within the framework of interlocutory appeals.  Obviously, in the ordinary case, one couldn't appeal the denial of a motion to dismiss, but if the denial effectively adjudicates an affirmative defense (i.e., lack of standing to file a joint petition), would that qualify as grounds for an interlocutory appeal?

    Just trying to get a sense of how this works in bankruptcy cases.
