Documentation is like sex: when it is good, it is very, very good; and when it is bad, it is better than nothing.

Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature. Computer Science is the post-Turing decline in formal systems theory. Beware of bugs in the above code; I have only proved it correct, not tried it.
