It was thus said that the Great Vadim A. Misbakh-Soloviov once stated:

  I have a few modules that are just a single function, such as Soundex [1],
the Y-combinator [2], Roman numberal conversion [3] and some other ones [4].
I've been hesitant to publish them just because of npm (well, rather the
whole npm leftpad fiasco).




[3]	From a number (integer) to Roman numeral (string), or from Roman
	numeral (string) to a number.

[4]	A "safestring" conversion routine, the core RFC BNF rules in LPeg, a
	function to do a hexdump, stuff like that ...
