this paper, while full of math and graphs and sh*t, doesn't make my
acl management simpler, clearer or more complete... I keep trying to
push my acls through the paper, no joy yet.

there's code or something somewhere that implements the algorithms and
graphs and sh*t that the paper shows in a pretty fashion?

(btw, you owe me some neosporin to take care of all the paper cuts)
