Don't have source code, so I'll pass on the c.  But I get the idea.

2000 lines overall, 1200 lines of code.  Perhaps a bit excessive to 
paste into a posting here.  So for moment it's in woodrat.zip at






In version posted I invoke (wr_register_menu_branch) 3 times, with 
argument (the value to return each time).  It also worked for me when 
I just invoked it once (on the first (script-fu-register)).  

Any comments or crits on code very welcome, e.g. if you happen to 
notice me doing anything wildly inefficient.  To actually run the 
script you need the pattern file included in the zip.



Never put anything smaller than your elbow
into your ear.
