 correctness can only be proven with unit tests, and by knowing in
advance exactly how the process works.  given that the process is not
really well-known, and that unit tests do not exist (only some
"developer testing / developer assistance" code)...

 if you recall, i did mention, jim, privately, right at the beginning,
that unit tests would be required, and that the unit tests would take
far longer to add (simply through sheer quantity required to "prove"
correctness) than the original code would take.
