Indeed, perhaps you concealed how the error control works more
cleverly than you concealed how everything else works.
That *I* don't understand the error control, however, is hardly
compelling evidence that it is cleverly obfuscated; rather, it is
evidence that I am ignorant of numerical analysis, as admitted in
