	That is all well worth doing of course; I imagine that improving
instances of our splitting / tokenising code left and right would also
be rather useful having some nice, standard, C++ iterators there that
avoided people having to use indexes left & right would yield a nice big
cleanup I think :-)

	Indeed; it would make a good start. Then again - in terms of useful
re-factoring, Caolans' nice UI / layout stuff looks like it has tons of
potential to create real user-visible improvement :-)
