I'm good with that.  Trying to plan for particular beneficial arrangements is a pain and you'll never know if it worked out anyway.  I'd love to plant in full polyculture but I can't see how to make that work on the scale I need in my annual garden.  So I just do lots of small beds with each crop separated from it's related crop by a reasonable distance.
