It's only cryptic for you because you are not yet used to LISP and its
concepts.  This is no critic; the working of nadvice is just hardly
understandable for someone not knowing yet how `let' works.  This is
also no critic.  We have all started from the beginning, and I respect
that you start hacking with a quite ambitious project.  Once you are
having fun using higher order functions and such stuff, you'll see that
it makes some sense.
