Right.  The method I proposed should use only a handful of bytes, unlike
the typical stack-of-segments approach.  I'm not sure how slow it would
be once implemented in 6502 assembly... it's one of those ``in theory''
it's faster than a simple brute force method, but only when the cases
get to a certain size.

Good luck!
