Some of us have been busy reverse engineering other obscure binary file
formats. You do seem to have unearthed a lot of separate problems here.
I'm slightly amazed that things work at all. I was getting the impression
that skiplist in 2.3 was less reliable than 2.1.X, but that was probably
just the wind was blowing in the right direction. I don't think that a
huge amount changed before you started to dig through the code.
