*nod* I'm already down to 182 characters by just turning the template
into a list of offsets in a list of known possible output combinations
(and it actually shortened the code, too). I can easily see how you
could get the representation for a digit down to a single byte, but the
mental version of the code needed to extract it seems much longer than
what I have now.

Madness, all of this. ;-) And yet, I can't wait to see what the 120
character version looks like...
