Well, that's where I want to start.  Presumably in the course of the
translation I'll get a better idea of what the thing is doing, and
possibly then I'll refactor.  (I started off using the adaptor pattern,
but as it started getting messy, I thought I ought to check and
ascertain that this was, indeed, the correct approach.  While writing to
ask about it was really the first time I had thought that subclassing
might be the best approach.)
