The example code you were working with was a very rough example.  Chuck
and I wrote it in a fwe weeks, and it was ugly and almost impossible to
follow.  It made a lot of assumptions that it shouldn't have made, just
because we wanted to see if it would work.

A comment seems to make sense.  Why don't you post a patch with a comment,
and I will commit it.
