Well, I got one taker to check my approach.

Last night I walked through two code examples from differing authors on 
generating addresses and finally got them to agree (the variance was due 
to a hex string conversion at one step...)

This has to do with an older way of generating addresses that is no 
longer done: using /*uncompressed*/ keys.

Back in the days when ""Satoshi"" was active online, he was using them...
