First of all: a Happy (and POV-Productive) New Year.

I am literally speechless. You did an awesome bit of work and I wouldn't 
know where to begin, especially as my mathematical skills are rather 
rudimentary. Are you going to provide us with some basic guide lines on 
how to start such experimentation? I guess that would be needed for 
several of us, setting us on our way.

Thanks indeed for your - and all those others - great work!
