I like what you have done here, but your work (and by that I mean the
analysis of the code, and to a lesser extent, the subroutines extracted)
and mine appear to be essentially the same.  I am going to commit my
work, which I have tested and found to solve the problem it was designed
to solve, and then begin the mechanical changes that are necessary to
reconcile your patches with mine.  I hope to avoid impeding your work
at abstracting the route cache, which is very desirable, but it may be
necessary for me to sleep before I finish reconciling the patches.
