HD 98800 and high inclination planets in multiple star systems

Apparently in a multiple stellar system the Kozai mechanism can be suppressed in certain cases, e.g. when the object is in a circumbinary orbit around an eccentric binary star. This applies to the HD 98800B system for which high-inclination orbits are apparently stable.
