Yes, it might well be worth looking at that again. I tried it once
in CAML Light and the results were disappointing. But one reason was
that something like weak pointers either didn't exist or I didn't
know about them, so my hash tables rendered some ephemeral stuff 
non-collectible.

I'll look forward to the release of your prover!

John.
