Hey all,
    I can work on this on September 8 - is this too late?
    David - I see what you mean regarding the covered holes, and I will make
that happen.  I think that I see what you mean regarding the property list
(ie each requested hole has properties such as "coveredness", "ring?"), but
if you sent a list of pertinent properties it'd make it more like that I get
it right the first time.
    If someone else would care to work on this before me (or if someone
would like to get to know the code by working on this with me), don't
hesitate to chime in.
