The shortest ruler found is the shortest known to date.  The odds of
finding a shorter ruler are so incredibly small, we would probably have
a press release if we actually found one shorter.

The purpose of the project is to *confirm* that the shortest known ruler
is the shortest possible ruler.

In answer to someone else's question, there are no overlaps in OGR.  A
stub represents a unique subtree of the entire OGR workspace.

Really?  Show me the link on the D.net site that says this.  The overall
OGR stats haven't been updated in a year so how do you know what the
outcome is?
