If you load the package library it just adds a publicly visible

I've been doing that for a while now - especially in the table

I even had to break out Knuth's "Art of Computer Programming"
Volume 3 to get the lowdown on Brent's variation of scatter chained

So forgive me if my brain is having difficulty telling the difference
between trees and forests :-)
