I'm sorry. You can't have your cake and eat it.
The high level idea you write above was already posted by e.g. Mark. You
(IIRC later) then wrote the same idea.
Then Mark & I proposed a way to implement it, Graeme did additional
research and I asked for your comments on that, and it turns out you
don't have any.
I still don't see the added value of your posts, and will leave it at that.
