Interesting stuff here :-).  I've never seen continued fractions
before (SE majors don't need any math beyond Calc 3, Discrete 2,
Prob & Stat 1, and Diff. Eq.).  I've also never seen the Fibonacci
numbers except in CS examples.  This is the first time I've seen them
applied somewhere.



Failure is not an option.  It is bundled with the software.
