[a bunch of quoted stuff]

Please remember to cut out from your replies the unnecessary old stuff.
It can take quite awhile to scan through looking for your comments.

Precision isn't all that useful when checking seq_<output>.

There really isn't much value in checking each possible
overflow site.  A periodic check prior to or in the middle
of a more costly/longish operation should be acceptable.

The entire block that precedes any seq buffer full test will
be redone when the buffer is expanded.
