It was actually much simpler, and easier to read. And then someone came along and wanted to add loads of complicated stuff, and the h2g2 Eds of the time told me I had to let it be updated. Despite me not being an absent Researcher, and the entry having spent ages in PR, and the changes not being PRed at all, so going in unchecked, unverified and unwanted.

Sorry still a bit bitter about that one.

Your method is good too though.
