I agree that this is a trade off that we need to look at closely.

Ok, the code is small and it has class comments. If you (and or anyone
else) is serious about looking at it for such an analysis I can offer a
detailed writeup of EXACTLY what it does and how it works. After all, I
have spent enough hours on this that I do not wish to see it all wasted.

Say "please do" and I will do it. :)
