No, as I understand it those have only one "principal hunt," seconds

Really? It seemed like something where I'd have to look at every one
of the Methods Committee's files, and pretty much scan the whole thing
to puzzle out what's what. Is there any easier way?

Re-tweeking some of my software, and while I'm at it I'm trying to fix
some bugs in how it handles some strange methods, and want to make
sure I'm aware of all the existing edge cases, at least.

Anyway, thanks for the info, which I will look at in detail soon (I'm
spending all day tomorrow on a train without network access, so it
will probably wait until the weekend), and get back to you if I have
any questions about any of it.
