This sounds very interessting indeed. I will probably have to bring the gilgul 
source up to shape, so that it is more easy to maintain, and spot the

I rather like how Jon maintains his sources.
I will investigate this a bit further.

The only bugs I encounterd were introduced by me in the first place.
So, your code was already so good, there was nothing left to improve for me ;)
