Sounds interesting. I will  have to estimate how much work is required. So,
you'll have to wait a little bit.

Good idea. How about :

  blank = [0..32]

Would everyone agree with this definition, or is there some hidden problems?

This is very easy to fix. So I'll implement it in the next version (unless
somebody points out a problem).
