If you're confident about the invariants, then this looks OK to

This code really wants a balanced binary tree structure.  We need
to find someone to implement one ;-)

I think that, with some work, this code could be broken out into
an independent file.  Then we could write some unit tests that
make sure that it really does the right thing in various
contrived situations.
