That's probably a reasonable approach for my immediate need.

I fully expected to have to tell it what I thought was "good" or  
"smooth", but I'd hoped to find something that would automate the  
guesses. I've got some papers on it around here someplace; I just was  
hoping to exploit somebody else's labor.

Good idea, thanks.
