Thanks for the info, I'll have a look.

No no, quite to the contrary: we WANT to have as many ways to do QC as 
we may find!

We're mere mortals (so prone to err), and this algorithm is horrendously 
complex (hundreds of thousands of lines, parallel execution, you name 
it) - bugs are inevitable. But real people actually rely on our results 
to carry out real production - millions are at stake. Ergo QC represents 
a large part of our development effort... and checking for consistency 
across toolchains is one more (and relatively easy) way to spot many 
bugs that might get unnoticed with each build taken separately.

Best,

Emanuel
