I agree - very hard to follow, worth the improvements.

Just to throw something out, the new Token API is not very consumable in 
my experience. The old one was very intuitive and very easy to follow 
the code.

I've had to refigure out what the heck was going on with the new one 
more than once now. Writing some example code with it is hard to follow 
or justify to a new user.

What was the big improvement with it again? Advanced, expert custom 
indexing chains require less casting or something right?

I dunno - anyone else have any thoughts now that the new API has been in 
circulation for some time?
