If an onen comes across a mas mitzvah (let's assume there is either another person to be involved with the onen's personal mas or there is more time to be involved with his mas later), is the onen allowed to be involved with the mas mitzvah? Is it optional for the onen? Obligatory? Perhaps ossur? What's the proof for this?

Yehoshua, welcome to Mi Yodeya and thank you for this intriguing question! I look forward to seeing you around. – Double AA Sep 9 '12 at 13:59
Could you translate/explain/link the jargon for the sake of less-expert readers here? (Like you did for asur.) Thank you and welcome. – Monica Cellio Sep 9 '12 at 17:12
@MonicaCellio I've tried to improve the readability. – Double AA Sep 9 '12 at 17:56
