It had nothing to do with being unappreciative, that's for sure :). 
No, the only real problem with Steve's code was a need to have infix
expressions.  Also, I think I didn't get his message right away b/c of
usenet server update problems.

Anyway, the other motivation for my attempt is that I'm both _using_
and _learning_ python right now.  So, I'm happy to spend a little more
time on a problem so that I can learn some more.

I didn't ask followups b/c I think I saw how the solutions were
working and could figure out how they would work for me (of course, I
could be delusional).
