AFAICS, mine has exactly one condition (GREED) which is not explicitly
contained in your approaches (AFAIR them). How can 1 be more than
something? ;-)

Note that the other approaches define a PROCESS (data depending on
time — or on “scan” position in string). My definition is completely
static — given a matching, it says whether it is good or not (without
any recursion, or interdependence of conditions).
