I would say that the C code is *delicate*, not necessarily bad.  In most 
ways, it's rather straightforward, it's actually the requirements that are 
complex.  :)

A Python implementation, however, would be a good idea to have around for 
PyPy, Py3K, and other versions of Python, and as a refactoring basis for 
writing any new C code.
