As to the syntax: I think that it is sort of clumsy to create half a
million of identifiers for various coverage degrees of a hole combined
with other features.  Scheme has fractions.  IIRC, the diagrams are
pieced together programmatically anyway, so arbitrary numbers between 0
and 1 could be supported while making the code actually simpler.

Instead of piling together attributes in an identifier name, it would
seem more natural to create something like property lists.
