It is not true that the previous code used these weights because it only
ran for half the segments (it had += 2). The intention with the code was to
do both the 4 and the 2 weight in one loop, but for that to work a1 and a2
would have to be updated, which the code didn't do. So it was indeed buggy,
and I think the new code is correct.

There should be spaces before the parentheses in the SAMPLE() macros,
