It looks safe to me.

While reviewing the code I noticed the use of a String[] instead of a 
simple class [1], which would make the code much more readable and more 
maintainable.  I have to admit that I reviewed it online on GitHub, it 
is probably not as bad in an IDE.

Would it make sense for me to refactor it?  The new class can be 
internal, possibly package private.
