Still a bit of a kludge?  inc updates *all* sequences in
unseen-sequence, so Paul could add one just for this task which he
zeroes before inc so it contains just the inc'd ones.

Though I wonder if inc could really do with an orthogonal -sequence that
it sets to precisely what it just created, i.e. it zeroes it beforehand.

Cheers, Ralph.
