I don't have a problem with the single character Huffman coding as an ADDITIONAL 
option.  But it needs to be in ADDITION to something like what I proposed, 
because that Huffman option itself only gives access to slots for a single 
object of the current class while mine works for all objects of the current 
class. -- Darren Duncan
