You should probably download and look at the code before thinking there
would be any possibility of multithreading might be a few extra lines
of code.

I once tried to add code to turn the regular (not the extended) search
into a recursive search. That sounds simple, doesn't it? It wasn't. I
gave up after three hours of trying to figure out which code to put in
a recursive loop.
