That's good to hear.  I didn't really like copying it, but also didn't feel
competent to generalize it.

In looking back at my fplib work (from 3 months ago), I see that I already
went through the process of reading the docs and porting softlib.  I'll now
take my port and re-organize it to match your plan.  I'll let you know of
