Ah, yes, sorry I did read it incorrectly.

Ok, but I still think there is quite a bit of inline computation of
this stuff that would more clearly and more robustly be done in a set
of common functions. If someone ever touches the code to support a
new upper layer, or even integrate with more complex compounding,
things will get ugly fast.

Again, a great candidate for a common set of subroutines, IMO.
