Hi Jon,

pretty quiet this mailing list, must be vacation time. But i did read 
the document. I specially like the "DON'T PANIC" as its true, the 
compiler code is a nice corner to look in. Even without deeper knowledge 
i managed to hack in a simple piece for the coins (also on long term 
vacation, so i didn't go on there).

Code Simplification sounds interesting, will look at that when my system 
calms down from tracking a network issue.
