So for I don't know, a week? I've been working on optimizing a finite automota powerset construction algorithm to work with unicode ranges without breaking it.

The "without breaking it" bit has me in fits. I've tried two different ways of tackling it on my own, and that worked until it didn't Frown | :( at which point I ripped a technique off from another library, and that I thought worked, again, until it didn't. Cry | :((

So now I'm just gutting the engine out of GPLEX and using that as the heart of Rolex.

Screw it. I know a wall when I hit one.

Now I just have to get the Gplex code torn down, retooled and slangified. No small feat. Harder in fact then if i had just gotten the above working.
