mine, as well as to each other's, I see no point in waiting to post
the code I had previously arrived at.  My fastest was:


And and shortest:


I compiled the larger part of the first function shortly before posing
this challenge, but doesn't seem to have provided any real advantage,
so I am going back a version without it for my own use.  I was using
length and sum checking to replicate some of the functionality of
