Not really sure what this has to do with my post to which you 
replied??  I assure you, I do not find code to be a fun, or even very 
interesting, topic of conversation, and I did not mention it at all 
in that post.  Really, the only thing I've said about code is that 
I've found it takes more than 100 lines to do a proper ADPLL.  When I 
have some time, I have to sit down and study Poul-Henning's code to 
see what I can learn from it about parsimony.

Best regards,
