As you say, there are two issues.  However, when you go beyond, what you 
as "back of the envelope" engineering and start using a computer, don't 
you think
it time to take as much advantage of it's number crunching power as 
possible?  Why
use approximations when you can do better?  

Example:  Why use Wheeler when Nagoka's formulas are more accurate? 
 There is
no need to use tables when you can calculate Nagoka's constant.  Just 
calculate the
needed constant each time you use the program and to any degree of accuracy
within the limits of the computer.

You also mentioned the problems associated with top loading.  Perhaps 
that should
be the first project.  I didn't intend to set priorities.

I presume you disagree that this is "getting a bit far from coiling".  I 
just meant
it was probably not of interest to many and I was being a bore.  Or, have I
