It's been ages since I read the paper, but there is a parallel

It is not difficult to implement. I may look into modifying
your code to implement it when I get some time.
It will certainly also be advantageous to pass the functions as
aliases, so that they can get inlined.
Thanks, Marc. I appreciate the pointer, and if you do have time
to look at the code. I confess that it can't really be called my
own implementation as I simply ported it to D. There is some
more clever stuff within quantlib (c++ project), but I quite
liked the idea of starting with this one as it is simple, and
speed is not yet vital at this stage.
