This is territory where I personally am fearful to tread - I'm no
developer, but I am an awfully good alpha/beta tester! I can go back
to the archives and try to see how far people got and what it would
take to finish it.

If you have a good quickselect, I could wrap median around it and see
how it behaves. I am happy to help push things along, but frankly
would be embarrassed to have any low-level code I wrote see the light
of day. I can test and document it in exchange though.

Mike
