To (apparently) quote the new version(*): "Well, that was remarkably pointless."
To me, a GREAT part of the magic of the original game is that it makes
a silk purse using a sow's ear (and my first two paying programming
jobs were using FORTRAN, and then working on a FORTRAN compiler)!
I recall thinking the tables (back before we called them data
structures) were a thing of beauty when I first saw them.
