verb question

I have a question about verbal morphology.

A language that I've started working on lately called (for right now) "Novian" has a
conditional/subjunctive marker -si or -sa and an imperative marker -ka.  My question is, can
conditional/subjunctive + imperative = optative?  It seems pretty reasonable to me, and I'd like
to have an optative marker in -ska (from -sa-ka), but I want to know what others out there think.
