LOL.  As soon as I try to dumb down the discussion (from my original
post on the thread) for the masses, and sure enough I catch the
attention of a national referee.  :-)

Not to fear Kevin, there is no such link between spin and multiple
contacts in the USAV beach (or indoor) rules.  I tried to stop short
of making that direct two-way implication, but I must have come close
enough to make you shudder.  They say explicitly:

USAV Beach 1998-99
13.4.4 A contact of the ball using the fingers of one or two hand to
       direct the ball toward a teammate is a set.  A player may set
       the ball in any direction toward his/her team's court. Rotation of a set ball may indicate a held ball or multiple
         contacts during the set but in itself is not a fault.
