At one point in time, someone (probably Dalibor Topic) suggested
implementing an alternative algorithm which requires fewer iterations.
I think it was also suggested that the starting point of the algorithm
be set to just below the known worst-case system so it doesn't take
long to find the limit.

Clearly there are more sophisticated algorithms that will find the
limit faster.

Unfortunately, a patch was never submitted ...
