If I had a few spare hours,
I'd dive in and do some serious checking, I really like this kind of analysis... but
I really have no time currently, I have too much to do... thanks for letting me know
(reminding me?) it exists...
If I get into troubles, I'll surely check out your function to see how it solves specific
issues my solution (might/surely) has.
the only notable advantage that I can see emcompass having, is in its form, where its
all packaged into one function with no dependencies, but you could easily repackage subfunc
to do that too... so my point is rather moot ;-)
I've never tried to make encompass go faster, since I wanted to code to be readable for
novice/intermediate users. also notice that it is EXTREMELY documented... which possibly
could make it easy to improve...
alternatives are always nice :-)
