Sorry for possible double post -- it looks like I used a wrong email
address when replying for the time. Doubling the post now just in case it
was bounced. Thank you!

Please see my suggestions at
https://gist.github.com/NovemberZulu/fbefa33fb90eba3fbcb8 -- no pull
requests for gists :( It also includes Seth's suggestion on the file
structure. I'll be happy to comment on suggested changes.

Best regards,
Maxim Nazarenko
