Gotta run, but: interesting!

Would be more interesting if it was implemented :-) This is a
roundabout way of saying that I don't think implementation will be
entirely straightforward/there may be easier ways to speed up method

More later.


  Strangely enough  I saw just such a beast at  the grocery store
  last night. Starbucks sells Javachip. (It's ice cream, but that
  shouldn't be an obstacle for the Java marketing people.)
