Many thanks for looking at this so quickly.

I think that these functions have slightly different behaviour from the
default case - I have used these for operands which encode e.g. the
values 1-8 in 3 bits, where the values 1-7 are represented in the usual
way, and the value 8 is encoded as 0. If I understand it correctly, the
default behaviour will encode the values 0 to 7 literally. Does my
understanding seem correct?

This has however drawn my attention to the fact that there is an error
in the insert function's check - the condition should have been

  if (value < 1 || value > UPPER)

so I will provide a revised patch shortly.


Many thanks,
Graham.
