It's not clear to me that this is a trivial thing, but it's worth noting 
that _I'm_ probably not going to have the time to dig into this a helluva 
lot in the near future.

However, I'm not about to stop anyone from hacking on the ccd (I, in 
fact, would encourage it, because there's _always_ room for improvement), 
and I'm sure that any reasonable, backwards-compatible enhancements would 
find their way into the distribution.
