Thanks Michael, I appreciate you taking the time to respond to
Pietro's msg -- I am currently rather occupied and unable to give more
thorough dialog, but I have noticed your contributions elsewhere with
much interest and recognize a like-mind!  I intend to check our your
site in more detail and find ways to combine our approaches at some
point.  Would love to dialog more about these topics.  Hoping to
create something over at nodilus.com in Santa Fe soon if you want to
join us.

There should be a wiki for source code...
