Don't worry, I'll have your cake and eat it too.

Good. Cool. So I've made a few changes:

  - renamed it to .rnc since it's in RNC and not RNG
  - modularised it as explained earlier  so you can be happy because  
it's centralised to a single directory, but it's not a centralised file
  - removed the built-in extensibility and used NVDL instead, which is  
more appropriate and maintainable
  - added support for WARP
  - removed a bunch of bugs
  - added a bunch of tests (examples from the spec) to make sure it's  

There are still a few bugs to iron out, but I'll fix that later.
