Here's the current set of differences between the copy of blead and 
chip/magicflags1 that I started smoking. I skipped all cases in the 
output where a report is missing for either of the perls. That's very 

Note also, that not all of these difference can possibly be attributed 
to Chip's changes but rather to dubious smoking circumstances or 
whatever. But going from 20k distributions down to a hundred for manual 
review is already a big win, I think. Keep in mind that the smoker is 
far from done!
