Sadly I have no time to do this.  I have run it by some folks that I
know at WRI and will make changes as they come in.

Also it's part of the documentation for my product and so I need to
keep track of it for that purpose.

But anyone who wants to take the core of the methods described and put
it up on a wiki is welcome to do so.  And, of course they can contact
me directly for permission to use the document in full if it seems
like a good idea.  The copyright stuff is just to make sure that
questions for use go through me first....
