Yep, but that's the easy part of the game, IMO.

This precisely what worries me -- bind might not be very efficient. I may be a
overly concerned about efficiency at the moment --- recently wrote a graph
algorithm in BGL which turned out to be 100 times slower that a simply-coded
one :-( Not sure if this is BGL's fault or the problem with the algorithm,
