    Actually, with the code Rajesh is working on there's
    no search problem with Hugh's idea.

    Considering the fact that we'll need Rajesh's code
    anyway, to deal with Ingo's test program and the real
    world programs that do similar things, I don't see how
    your objection to Hugh's code is still valid.
