This was definitely a simpler approach, that pseudo code was pretty much 
the complete solution. I have a patch that works as a champ and seems 
quite fast (I haven't really timed it). It does remember last known 
position and so on. There's no real outstanding problems, just a lot of 
testing to be made and finer details to be settled before this goes into 
any commit.

Can you see any caveats with this approach? I can't.
