Thanks. I want to redesign some of the tiles, which offend my CS and
math sensibilities and put unnecessary obstacles in our children's
way. Then we can have a challenge to see whether my tiles make it
practical to do more complex TA manipulations with less work.

I proposed separately making a TA tile set with icons rather than
names, but I don't know if anybody has picked up the idea. I proposed
a design, which just needs a graphic artist to make a new set of SVGs
for the tiles.
