I'm a maniac in avoiding magic-numbers :) 
And compile switches are very useful for debugging too.

Yes, since I've allways done it that way, it's now in the changed Distella version I posted to the list in August. And that version should also be able, to recognize the extra cycle when a page-boundary is crossed (2³+1).
