That sounds like good advice, thanks.  The README in the
archive didn't explain much, so I'll have to have a look at
the code when I get a chance.

Thanks to everyone who's responded.  I'm still interested,
in case anyone else has something to say on the subject.
However, the upshot of your responses seems to be that it
would be A) difficult and B) unnecessary, so maybe I won't
do it after all.  Things seem to have been going downhill
ever since they invented punch cards.
