Beautiful (just like the original). :) I had a few idle moments, so I sat down and cleaned it up a bit. It started out mainly as a cleanup of the rainbow palette generation (which is now in RAINBOW_PAL and calc_gradient()), but grew to a complete reorganization. It does not, I'm afraid, have the neat update-as-you-calculate effect anymore, but the upside is faster runtime - and it is pretty easy to port to a different windowing system, a console-only version that outputs a PNG via GD or any number of other output possibilities by just changing init_and_make_updater() as well as done().
