I gotta say -- I know nothing about the subject, but as far as the code
posted, Stefan's looks a _lot_ simpler.  More specifically, I get the
sense I could figure out what Stefan's code is doing by reading the docs
a bit, whereas the corresponding code from Alan seems impenetrable.

Maybe that doesn't matter to you Alan, because you're immersed in your
current solution, but I think it would be good to think about future
maintainers too.
