Well spotted. I searched back through my email where I asked if I may
use this code (the SFF format had feedback from many people, including
myself, but at least I did take the effort to check that the code to

restrictions on that source code." from Jim Knight at 454.com.
I'll contact him again to clarify the redistribution, copy and
