Hi Abraham,

there are at least two recent threads where
and problems with it are discussed:

Apart from the problems which happen while aligning to Voice vs
NullVoice this snippet creates a bunch of stencils, just to compare
their extents and then throws them away.
I don't think we want such code in the source.
Otoh, it may be worth to think about a better approach for that feature...
