Yup, I've made it into "seems to be working" state. I gave it to Russ, and 
haven't heard of it since then :)

The reason probably is because in it's present state it's not "universal". 
Eg. it relies heavily on 4-byte IEEE floats present on a system (which may be 
a problem in Macs) - because it uses radix sorter from Opcode that's written 
for floats.

Haven't tried it in any "real world" situation; and the last time I've done 
anything remotely similar to FPS is, well... like 7 years ago :) I've only 
made a couple of tests (eg. boxstack) and measured it's 
performance/correctness against other spaces (simple, hash, quadtree).

I'll try to find the files/patch today and upload that somewhere.
