Definitely agreed. It's well-commented which makes it much easier for
others to dig in. Thanks for taking a look at the refactoring.

Apologies that I'd totally missed your cookbook entry. That looks great,
but more documentation is always better. If you are okay with LaTeX, the
Tutorial is in Doc/Tutorial.tex so you can edit directly. The wiki is
also a good place for docs if you prefer to go that way.

Thanks again for all the work on this. Looking forward to having it in,
