I was waiting for a comment from you. Your incredibly insightful,
exhaustive and focused review of the previous version was the main driving
force behind this version. Looking back, it's still hard to for me to
believe that in the six hours you said you spent anyone could really
understand the implementation to the depth you did. Basically, all I did
was to implement all your suggestions one at a time. Early on I switched
over to your test library. This permitted me to add features one at a time
and test at each stage. It did result in a lot of code being rewritten
several times. But I think in system like this one can't really look far
enough into the future implementation to avoid this.

So it's not too much to say that if this library lives up to the hopes and
expectations I have for it, it will be due to a collision between your
previous review and my personality flaw that inspires me to throw myself at
lost causes.

I was going to suggest you might separate some time to review it. On the
other hand, maybe I should quite while I'm ahead.
