Comment (by rhaas):

 hmm, this will take a while I am afraid. The code is still very hard for
 me to read since it introduces many new lines of code and changes other
 lines above and below as well. It also seems to be completely uncommented,
 using very short variable names to give me no hint as to what they may
 mean, making this a very hard to maintain code I fear.

 One question I have even before digging any deeper: why does the human
 readable range only include 'a' to 'y' and not 'a' to 'z' (and similar for
 digits and uppercase letters)? Should the underscore '_' be included in
 human readable (this would make human readable the class of characters
 allowed for C identifiers).
