For your information the subversion repository is now maintained at



I think the patch solution strategy is correct, but we get an error for the low 
ord chars for some reason. Can we work things so the first 32 are ignored at 
first and then filled in on demand? I guess that would mean hacking the code 
somewhat so we increment modulo 0xFF and generate a new subset when n&0xFF==32
