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).
