Hmm. This is what we saw in early versions of the system I mentioned.
Sometime the emergent behaviour of candy-grams with other candy-grams,
and themselves, even within a "safe" environment, is quite interesting

I should also mention that Elk is very good, but slow when compared to
some other schemes... the smallest of course, is probably siod: 45k or
so., and imbeddable.
