Toyed is exactly the right word. I'm very slowly heading in that direction,
but don't expect any results worth talking about for a couple years, at
the rate I'm going!

There has been discussion of this on the list before (as usual!), but I
don't have any specific references. Try searching for "paths",
"fractal", etc.

Don't design inefficiency in - it'll happen in the implementation.
