Jeremy: any comments on the relative merits of your version vs Vaughn's?
Vaughn's calc looks way simpler.

Mine doesn't require developers to remember the initial values for the two component checksums, or even to acknowledge their existence — This function is more encapsulated.

Vaughns function is strictly functional - without side-effects and won't use variables outside the scope and canonically tail-recursive.

much faster and could be multi-threaded and used even for rendering on many layout objects in parallel ..
