I wish I could tell you, but this top secret code :-)

I don't know how it works, and to be honest, I kind of doubt that even the
guy who originally wrote it knew exactly how it worked.

This is _the_ really big hurdle now for making significant progress on the
AI. The correct thing to do is to throw out the existing ferry code and
write a new one.

Sorry, but I really suggest that is where you start. I and Greg have been
talking a little about how to implement such a new ferry system, but
neither of us have produced any working code. This should change now that
pf is in.

Greg - have you given this topic more thoughts since last time we spoke
about this?
