Over the years I've come to the conclusion that it's easier to rewrite 
from scratch than to reverse engineer someone else's code.  Especially 
so when no effort is made to document what the code is doing, the 
algorithms used, what the variables represent, etc.  Far too many people 
code in just this way!
