But actually the 'done' variable is useful.  By setting
'done' to 2 as an argument -  if 'source'
 is 6 elements, I get back a list of the 4 element
permutations of the 6 elements - excluding reversals as
dups, of course.

Happens to be useful functionality for what I'm
playing with.

Thanks again.
