It would be good, but, ultimately, this is an implementation detail
that should have no impact on the library's end users...probably not
something that needs to be a top priority...

I would rather not make the code totally incomprehensible unless
there is a very clear and compelling reason to. It takes less than 30
seconds for me to recompile all 22 example programs on my machine,
which is quite acceptable...
