The work is not invalid. I just think there was a better way to build it,
and a better way to create something with more flexibility.

But I *do* believe having the C code is better than having nothing. (and I
certainly didn't have time to change that "nothing" into a (Python) script)
Alexander's work hasn't gone to waste. I just think that we'll end up with
some scripting tools in the long run. *shrug*
