The problem here is that everyone has their own grading scheme. And we
have heard of some pretty unique ones.
So we generated the SPRS in response to this. However the level of
flexibility the SPRS has makes it unfotunately a bit unwieldy and slow.

Well there is always the chance. And if you had some code the
changes. It's even more likely. :-)
Feel free to bring it up on the dev list when we start looking for
ideas for the version past 1.3.
