in thread With apologies to Peter Hammill

While new versions do have this flashy appeal to me, rationally, I shouldn't have anything against running old code just because it's old. Especially because newer code tends to make less modest assumptions about how much resources should be enough for anybody. With older implementations of computational algorithms it even adds some fun to know that the code that's crunching one's own numbers right now is only 4 years younger than the album I so shamelessly stole the lyrics from.

I guess I was just too used to finding the correctly-working implementations on CPAN on the first try. I'll try to fix something once I get around to it.
