Thanks for a pointer.  I do recall that I found that one very
promising.  I can see from
https://public-inbox.org/git/xmqq7eefv02i.fsf@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/
that I was mostly OK with the end-user facing documentation part,
and also from
https://public-inbox.org/git/xmqq36p3uxq2.fsf@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/
I was OK with the idea of exposing the computation but found that
the exact command option it was done with was suboptimal; neither of
these was pointing out any incorrectable flaw).
