beautiful and powerful!

on which OS are you? 

I just compiled the whole score under windows/xp-sp3 with 512 MB RAM and I
can confirm it used up to 665MB main memory - and of course it took a long
time to finish: 46 minutes!
unfortunately i forgot to turn off "point'n click", so a file of 3.76MB
resulted (yours only had 600KB!)

further small differences are probably due to the fact that i run it with
2.12.2 and i got only 26 pages (28 in yours) - but it will take some time to
see all differences.

anyway: congrats for this beautiful work and thanks for making it available
for all interested people!
