The old code was a hairball. The new code is a bunch of relatively simple
sequential passes - 10 so far, final version likely to have 12 or 13 - with
well-defined preconditions and exit contracts. If nothing else this is
going to make troubleshooting any remaining defects much easier.

They were, and are all merged now, except for one that Richard just landed.
